David Shand, screenprints
Atom Gallery, 5th March – 2nd April 2016
Atom Gallery was very pleased to announce “HUNG UP RIPPED OFF” a solo show of screen prints by David Shand. David makes intriguing collages from photographs of decayed posters and adverts. He manipulates and subverts the imagery before producing screenprints on paper or wood. They combine a keen eye for abstract composition and transform the commercial four colour printing process into something of intrigue and beauty.
In the early 1990s David became drawn to London’s expired advertising. He began to
photograph and later montage the images together. In 2010, he started to screenprint his
Atom Gallery exhibited approximately twelve 50x70cm and four 100x70cm prints,
many of which have never been shown before. Prices start at £85 for an unframed work and all work is hand screenprinted by the artist.
David has sold work at the Printclub London Gallery, the London Affordable Art Fair and the Druck Berlin Screenprint Festival. This is his first solo show.
