Print Garage

Presenting Print Garage, a branded name run by artist and screenprinter, Iain Perry, who owns the art of creating deeply layered, colour saturated, slow motion screen prints. Recently added to our online store, you can shop his collection here or below.

We dived deep into his creative process and discovered his interesting approach to methodology. We found that Perry’s image generation process is a slow method of experimentation, of trial and error; collecting imagery, developing patterns and overlaying all the different elements until new and intriguing relationships emerge.

The work borrows language from other art forms, film and photography, poetry, electronic music and rave culture – amalgamating, mixing and remixing, offering up familiar signs and signifiers but now refracted and reflected, illusive and allusive, all lightly seasoned with a slightly understated degree of subversion. Layers of fragmented iconography and geometry coalesce on the paper, like motes of dust trapped in a beam of light teasing us with a cheeky glimpse of a much bigger gestalt.

The result is a stunning series of printed layers of fragmented iconography and geometry that coalesce on the paper, like motes of dust trapped in a beam of light teasing us with a cheeky glimpse of a much bigger gestalt. The final collection, is a series of paeans to pigment, a psychedelic hallelujah to the handmade and handprinted, colour and tone poems that are a tiny bit joyful.

We’d like to thank Iain for this contribution to this article!
