Sun Visor by Jim Lambie hand finished limited edition print
Limited edition digital print by Scottish artist Jim Lambie produced for the Below another sky which was the first collaborative programme developed by the Scottish Print Network, a partnership between Dundee Contemporary Arts, Edinburgh Printmakers, Glasgow Print Studio, Highland Print Studio, Inverness and Peacock Visual Arts, Aberdeen.
Below another sky gave each artist the opportunity not only to explore new approaches to printmaking within their practice, but also to do so within new contexts through international research residencies. His trip to Antigua gave him the opportunity to experience at first hand Caribbean culture as expressed in the island’s musical traditions and architecture. He also took the opportunity to visit Great Bird Island, a tiny islet that lies almost three kilometres north-east of Antigua
The digital print ‘Sun Visor’ is Lambie’s interpretation of being ‘below another sky’: it features a red-billed Tropicbird, known for swooping down from great heights, as it flashes in to view under a blazing sun.
Jim Lambie (born 1964 in Glasgow) is a Scottish Artist living and working in Glasgow. He was was shortlisted for the 2005 Turner Prize with an installation called Mental Oyster. Lambie’s work is loaded with references, sometimes metaphorical or ironic, to popular culture, art history and music.
