In 2014 my work was selected to take part in the Blisters Exhibition. The show’s theme was The Sound Sessions
where each artist produced a piece inspired by a performer, song or gig. I chose David Bowie as my inspiration after visiting the incredible ‘David Bowie is…’ exhibition at the V&A. Bowie has so many iconic looks locked into our collective subconscious; my problem was choosing which one to go with. I decided to show them all with a montage of every look across the years, like a timeline. As Bowie was constantly changing, I thought this was a good way to visualise his evolution.
The print sold out shortly after going online and I thought that was that.
Then, on January 10th 2016, I awoke to the shocking news that David Bowie had died of cancer and that his final album release Blackstar and the video for the single Lazarus was his goodbye to the fans.
I was stunned. The world seemed stunned too and there was an outpouring of sadness and love like I had never witnessed. This horrible disease had stolen someone that still had so much to give. As an icon he had touched us all, with his music being a soundtrack to all our lives.
So I contacted Print Club London wanting to do something, anything, and I sounded out an idea of re-releasing the print as a variant edition with a new layer added to the montage using the final image Bowie had left us with. The wonderful people at Print Club London loved the idea and offered to supply the paper, the ink, their valuable time and experience and their online shop to sell the print from with all proceeds going to Cancer Research UK.
The print will be an edition of 69; a print for every year of his life.
Many thanks to Kate, Fred and everyone at Print Club London; without them this would never have happened.
