Neon Moonrise Phase 1, forms part of a series of prints titled Spectral Nation.
Spectral Nation is an exploration into the screen printing process. An on-going project, this body of work is constantly in flux, growing through a series of colour and print process interactions combined with irregular print experiments.
With a focus on visual perception, the relationship between colours and how they effect the retina and the mind is explored. A further area of interest is the journey an image makes through different processes, from digital manipulation into analogue, and the transformations and distortions this journey can bring about, sometimes deliberate, often by chance, uncovering hidden complexities within simple compositions.
Spectral Nation is a collaboration between Luke Frost, Jon Rundall, and Therese Vandling of Heretic printmakers.
Heretic is a London based illustration, design and screen printing studio comprising of Luke Frost, Jon Rundall and Therese Vandling. Heretic studio work on wide ranging projects from art-prints and gig-posters, to record covers and 3-D sound installations. Exploring themes such as inner and outer visions, strange mysticism, tomorrow’s symbolism and vague emotions, Heretic’s work primarily involves juxtaposing and blending elements of collage and drawing, using screen printing as much for it’s visual as for its reproductive qualities. Previous exhibitions included an 8ft high screen-printed drone pyramid, “Bleaching the mind of all who dare enter.”…. Their work has been exhibited all over the planet from Istanbul to Los Angeles.
