About this Poster

As with most of my work, this poster started with a photograph. In this instance, a photograph of screen printing ink, on-press. I then spent time working the image to a point of near destruction, before creating a custom brush with it. Then I used this to effectively paint the main part of my poster. I love that the image came from the screen printing press, before making its way back there. The rest of the poster was then a fun exercise in typographic design. One of my lesser-known pleasures.

Meet Rebecca Cleal

Bath, England

I am a photographer and printmaker. I co-founded the White Duck Editions studio 14 years ago, which is where I make my own screen prints. I'm fascinated by the process of recycling an image, over and over again, until I arrive at something new. Taking my photographic images and processing them as screen prints allows me to indulge this fascination, a lot!

Back Story

Deep And Glossy

This poster signifies a continuation of photographic-based screen prints that I've been working on for some years. The technique used to separate the image results in a really deep-looking print, which the gloss overprint enhances all the more. I think that's pretty cool.

Grandparent Inspiration

Perhaps being around my grandparents as a kid made me want to become an artist. They ran a gallery workshop together, and my grandfather was a painter and sculptor. I found what they set out to do, and achieved, very inspirational.

Making Matters

The best advice I've ever gotten? “It's the making the matters, not the thing you make.”
