Alphabet Prints were created in lockdown, using materials and equipment already at hand. From these constraints an entirely new means of making images emerged.

Raw neon tubes of various colours were drawn by hand across a large flat-bed scanner, resulting in intense, finely striated spectra, often including surprising bursts of unrelated colours as the neon frequencies and the irregularities of the artists’ movements interacted unpredictably with the smooth mechanical motion of the scanner.

The prints themselves deploy these images as the facets of three-dimensional letters, in the classic Gill font derived from hand-carved stone lettering. Formally they have the graphic punch of Pop Art as well as the disconcerting optical buzz of Op Art.
