Andrew Bick’s paintings and prints consist of endless permutations - at the core of the artist’s practice is a grid system, one he reproduces time and time again. In 2008, Bick copied a grid structure from one of his own artworks, digitised it, and has since used this same grid as a starting point for his works. In Bick’s view, new versions of the abstract, concrete and constructive, necessitate the repetition of banal information, leading to an unexpected conjuncture of word and image. His work is based on the belief that disruption within a system helps us relearn the process of paying attention. OGVDS [detail] print #1 (2013) is a fourteen layered screen print, in which Bick’s original OGVDS-GW grid was drawn with a laser as first layer. The burnt line of the laser acts as an interstice and with more layers of ink, the brown lines stand out below the surface. Gloss, matt and half-tone sections have been layered over the original screen-printed grids to create shifts in colour and texture.
Slight variations may occur in artworks printed by hand.
