Charlie Fegan’s use of a reflective gold background in this graphic screen-print of lilies revitalises the work’s traditional subject matter. In the making of this print, the lilies were flattened and then placed on a screen coated with light-sensitive emulsion. The screen was then exposed to UV light and once the emulsion was washed away, the silhouetted flower stencil remains on the screen. Fegan likens this process to Victorian cyanotype technology, which has a relationship to his video work. ‘In a way, in my practice, I have inadvertently been using the same lo-fi and analogue techniques of Victorian hobbyists but I push them to produce an altered sense of space and reality’.
Fegan is a current student in the RA Schools and Lilies in the Field is one of his first screen prints.
