This is a reduction and multi-plate lino print, part of an ongoing series inspired by the mechanical and electronic handheld games of the late 1970s and early 1980s. This particular print is inspired by – though not an exact representation of – Bandai’s Missile Invaders, an electronic LED game in a bright blue case with various orange buttons and controls.
I wanted to create something handmade, highly variable and unique but reminiscent of the smooth plastic devices I remember. From a slight distance the image is recognisable as one of the iconic handhelds from the 80s, while up-close the hallmarks of the handmade process – textured ink, visible edges to layers, the occasional smudge – are all there to see and enjoy.
Each of the images of the piece can be zoomed in to see the detail and surface texture.
As a variable edition, each of the ten prints differs slightly from the next.
This print is presented in a white frame with a triple mount of Antique White mountboard. This helps keep the texture of the ink away from the glass so it can be appreciated on close inspection.
Please note that as each print in the edition is being sold individually, the images you see here are of the print you will receive.
See the ‘additional information’ tab for details of frame dimensions.
Postage and packaging is included.
