Bed Springs (blue) signed limited edition lithograph print by Mona Hatoum made especially for the NHS 70th Anniversary Portfolio. Lithograph on 400gsm Somerset tub.
"As an artist who often uses furniture and everyday objects in my work, for this print project I felt it appropriate to make a specific reference to beds. The image is created using bed springs that have been removed from the confinement of the metal bed frame and placed on a sheet of paper. I then sprayed over the springs with a spray can to create a negative image to achieve a photogram or an X-ray-like image. For the final lithographic print, I decided to use blue ink in order for it to resemble a photographic cyanotype print. I was very happy to be invited to contribute to this print project to support the NHS, such a neccessary and worthy service." - Mona Hatoum
