Study in Black
Conceived in 2015 between Jealous Gallery and Enitharmon Editions, The Print and the Poem series has the intention of exploring a valid and honest dialogue between art and writing. The presentation of each publication in the form of a portfolio is also intrinsic to the project, with each portfolio and its contents being an object to be explored and engaged with.
This is the 2016 edition, and the second in the series. Gary Hume has produced a 2-colour silkscreen print with debating on Somerset Satin White paper, in an edition of 45, along with the poem Study in Black by Rickey Laurentiis.
The poem is from Boy with Thorn, by Rickey Laurentiis (2015). Reprinted by permission of the University of Pittsburgh Press.
