About

"These were hardly prints really. They were done with a screen, very thin. At that time Alan McCulloch, who was responsible for the Georges Prize, required candidates to enter a painting and a drawing. No one was drawing in those days, so the basis for the drawing I entered was this print. I did two or three of these."
