A set of 12pt Ludlow rules were manipulated on press to create a series of moire patterns. These were then stretched on a scanner, vectorised in Illustrator and finally laser cut from MDF to create a printing block. This block was then printed three times. Each block is affected by the other, creating three planes that appear to levitate. It has nothing to do with the band Levitation or the LP of the same name by Hawkwind (although Levitation is one of Hawkwind's finest...).

The type is 24pt Tempo Bold Extended 
500 x 700mm 
170gsm Munken Lynx 

Edition of 15.

Laser cut MDF and hot metal type
 Paper 70 x 50cm 


Thinking of buying an original print priced at £100 or above*?

We are members of Own Art, a national scheme funded by Arts Council England that makes it easy and affordable for everyone to buy contemporary art.

Own Art allows you to spread the cost of a purchase of an original artwork over 10 months with an interest free loan.  With so many works of art to choose from, you could start a collection of your own today from as little as £10 per month.

To help explain the scheme, here are our answers to some frequently asked questions:

What can I buy?

Own Art loans are available in our gallery for the purchase of contemporary art and craft by living artists.  That means you can choose more or less anything you want from paintings, prints, drawings and sculpture, to glassware, ceramics, jewellery and textiles.

How much can I borrow?

Own Art loans allow you to borrow from as little as £100 up to a maximum of £2,500 for the purchase of works of art by living artists.

How do I apply?

After you've found something in our gallery or online that you love, speak with a member of staff who can talk you through your options on 0191 2617000. You are able to pay a deposit with Own Art to lower your monthly costs although this is not necessary and the loan can cover framing if you wish.  The best option is to visit the gallery if you would like to proceed with an Own Art application where a member of our team will take you through the loan application process.  You will need to bring proof of ID, address and signature - a driving licence is ideal or a utility bill and credit or debit card.  The application process usually takes 10-15 mins following which you'll get an instant decision so you can take the work home on the same day.
