About The Paintings & Prints On This Website

Sometimes there is more than one piece of work with the same or similar title (each usually classified in a different series). Also, when working on a theme, occasionally the original title has been changed to protect the innocent. AKAs abound. This is not as confusing as it sounds – after all, this is a visual medium and seeing is believing. Have a look, make notes and reach out and ask if you have a question!

Artwork Sizes

Later paintings (post 2000’s) are pretty much a standard size, approximately 50 x 45 inches / 127 x 115 cm, but some of the sizes of earlier works are goodish guesstimates, as Doug worked in feet and inches (and, from the scale of his works, lots of them) and many works are in not readily accessible storage with no accurate record of exact dimensions.

It should also be be noted that some pieces are not in Doug’s possession and possibly may not actually still be in existence.

giclee print collection doug kemp pop art post modernist popartdoug large optimized

Giclee Art Prints

Spelt correctly, Giclée is a French word for spray (little squirt!). This is a digital printing process in which a dedicated type of ink-jet printer is used with specialist inks to produce a high quality Art print. As an artist, I feel a Giclée print produces a better finish than other types of modern artist printing formats.

linocut print collection doug kemp pop art post modernist popartdoug large optimized

Linocut Artist Prints

A Linocut is a relief print that is produced like a woodcut but uses lino as the surface from which the design is carved as a template used for the printing. In making a Linocut, basically your design uses the raised (uncarved) areas for the different inks to print the same picture over and over.

silkscreen print collection doug kemp pop art post modernist popartdoug large optimized

Silkscreen Artist Prints

Creating screen prints – The inks are forced through a mesh screen onto the printed surface. This enables certain areas of the screen template to be made impervious to the printing ink, in effect creating a stencil. The ink that is able to pass through forms the printed image.
