about this work

To accompany the exhibition Richard Hamilton at the ICA, London in 2014, Cory Arcangel produced a limited edition print made on an old Plotter Machine, whereby motors draw a pen across the surface of a sheet of paper, taking commands from a software program. The result is distinct from an inkjet or laser-print. Surprisingly, given the robotic-like means of which it is made, it retains the hand-made feel of a painstakingly precise sketch.

Arcangel has chosen the image of a racing motorcycle for this new print, which is individually finished by hand in colour. The drawing is called Ducati (2014) and reflects on Hamilton's installation Man, Machine and Motion (1955) which comprises of photographic images of man at speed, height and depth – in cars, planes and underwater. Arcangel says that the sports bike is a reflection of the 'speed and style' that he sees in the work of Richard Hamilton.
