Meat Wagon Safety Matches


45 in stock


Before the lockdown began I had begun working on a large 3 colour screen print of this piece. I had spent 10s of minutes researching beautiful old matchboxes which essentially rehash the same layout and designs over and over in a pre-computer age clip art fashion. Many of these designs span the globe, with just a tiny change of text or image depending on the geographical location, and I wanted to create a matchbox design that brought this form closer to home. Meat Wagon Safety Matches measures 29×21cm and is printed onto off white Claire Fontaine 220gsm acid free art paper. Each print is signed and numbered with an artist’s stamp on the back. It comes packaged in a cello bag and is posted flat. Meat Wagon Safety Matches is a limited edition of 50.

Many thanks
