Jamie Sholvin - Redaction Variations (The Tehran Times)

As part of Ingleby Gallery's Billboard for Edinburgh project, Jamie Shovlin has created an edition of fifty unique, hand-painted screenprints. 

Shovlin's print originates from a notice placed in microfilm copies of the Tehran Times denoting missing or damaged content in the paper's archive. In an unusual take on the Billboard for Edinburgh project, Shovlin has created fifty unique works each of which use the original text as a starting point but reconstruct it by masking and revealing different elements. 

Each work is a one-colour screenprint with acrylic and gesso.
