Charlie by Kirsty Harris
Digital print on tapestry backing material
Edition of 15 + 2xAPs
Printed from an image of my original oil painting, this print can simply be pinned on the wall - no framing required.
Charlie was a nuclear test performed by the USA in the Yukka Flats in 1952. The size of this print is relative to the yield of the test with each square cm representing 4 tons of TNT, which in turn is how the energy released from the explosion is quantified.
About my artistic practice - I explore the notion of nuclear explosions as cultural, historical and iconic symbols. I reference the scale, beauty and the abhorrent nature of the mushroom clouds while also delving into the periphery of the subject and its surrounding evidence and equipment. I’m a multi disciplinary artist with work spanning a wide range of media including painting, printmaking, short films, audio compositions, ceramics, cyanotypes, wall drawings and installations.
