About the Artist
Much of the labour in Adam Garratt’s practice comes from screen printing onto the woven plastic of Rubble Bags, Tarpaulin or Sand Bags producing a quality of images that shows the printing process’ relationship with the surface of the material. The prints tell the story of the images but also tell the viewer about the process and material. Adam’s printed work often looks like newspaper print, a useful visual device as when displayed that quality filters out into the gallery and adds a subtle layer to the work.
Printing allows Adam to become an integral part of the process of making, artist as machine.
