    About The Work

    Platelayers' Shed is part of Dazzle, a body of work created by Carl Fudge based on an interpretation of woodcuts by Edward Wadsworth. Wadsworth (1889-1949) was a member of the Vorticists, a British art movement (1914-15) which embraced modernism using abstracted themes of industry and the machine age. In his reworking of the image, Fudge utilizes digital technology and stresses the geometric shapes and composition through form and concentrated colors to push the abstraction into a more conceptual realm. In doing so, the artist explores the similarities between this early 20th century fascination with the industrial age and our own obsession with digital technology.

    An initial base sheet of grey was created using pigmented cotton pulp in a mold allowing for a four edge deckle. Dark thalo blue linen pulp was applied using a photo-emulsion polyester-screen, then the completed piece was pressed and dried. Lastly, an embossing of a target shape with concentric rings was pressed into the surface using the hydraulic press.
