Minimal composition featuring a tarmac road in the landscape. Evocative of travelling.
The Starting point for this series of prints is imagery form a computer driving game. A 'still' from the game is printed, then traced, redrawn and printed ready to be worked into a screenprint. The result is merely a backdrop - much like a scene painter creates an image that may enhance a narritive. Because of this, the work may be imbued with the veiwers narritie, allowing it to become their own.
