YSP Clock Edition

Posted by on Tuesday 16th June, 2015

Rob has created a really colourful special edition of our ‘There Is Only Time’ clock for Yorkshire Sculpture Park!!


Rob wanted to create a really bright and new edition of the clock for YSP so he instructed Tom to begin by printing the background as a pink fade. Tom placed the darker pink ink at the top fading to a lighter pink at the bottom before pulling the ink over the screen with a squeegee. As you can probably imagine it takes a lot of practice to get an even fade!


He then tested lots of colours in several layers to see which combinations worked best. The artwork was seperated onto different sections on the screens to enable Tom to print this.





After reviewing all of the samples it was a unanimous decision, we opted for the purple foreground with red and pale blue detail.


Rob created a special print for the back of the clock which was printed in a bright pink.


The clocks will be signed and editioned by Rob before being fitted with their mechanisms, the hands then come separately for you to fit at home!

The clocks are an edition of 36 and will be available from Yorkshire Sculpture Park shop from 4th July. They will be priced at £180.

Listen to the World‘ is an exhibition of new and existing work spanning the last 6 years of Rob’s career, the show runs from 4th July – 1st November 2015.
