Hope is a ‘hybrid’ print of an orginal mixed media artwork I created to portray Carrie Fisher in her iconic role as Princess Leia in Star Wars.

I wanted the print to be different to the original and so starting with a digital print, three screen printed layers were added to emphasis the reds and blacks and also to give it a gold background in a lush finish not possible with acrylic or spray-paint.

Hidden within the portrait (some more obvious than others) are motifs relating to Carrie’s life and career: postcards, pills, a TIE fighter and a danish bun are all interwoven with her image.

Digital inkjet archival print with 3 colour screen printed overlays on Somerset Satin 330gsm paper
