Using laser-cut woodcut techniques and screen print to create a combination of flat and wood-grained surfaces, Hume’s chosen palette of pastel colours for these new works was painstakingly adjusted to create a sense of ‘falling away’ and giving a softer impression than is found in the glossy paintings for which he is renowned. Ticket developed substantially as an image during Hume’s time in the RA Schools printmaking studios. In its first incarnation marks resembling tears moved from the semi-circular form at the top of the image to the bottom; the final print’s imagery has been pared down and a foreboding black form added. With the semi-circles now in negative, the overall impression is reminiscent of a paper ticket.
All proceeds from the sale of RA Editions prints go directly to support the RA Schools.
