Each: 86.8 x 75.8 cm
Art Fund grant:
£12,000 ( Total: £12,000)
Acquired in:
Lisson Gallery

Created using photographs of members of the band, the images are 'digital drawings', conveying essential information with the minimum of detail, reducing the subjects to black outlines and unmodulated colours. The prints were produced in four sets, each one differing in size, and therefore unique.


Lisson Gallery, London.
