Hand-painted silkscreen print with hand-painted collaged elements and glazes.
Monica's Walnut Sponge Cake is one of five prints inspired by episodes from McLean's autobiography 'Mixed Grillings'. which is a series of 150 true stories of which food is the central motif. Excerpts from the text have been incorporated into the composition; displaying the artist's quirky and unique sense of humour. Each work represents a memory, a story, a slice of the artist's life and his artistic response to that memory; and as such they constitute his most personal work in recent years. Each print is hand-worked by the artist.
