HAND OUT GLOVE

  Monotype print, silver on black, MDF board   –   05.2 x 31.5 x 15 cms    –    August 2013    –

 A latex glove has been rolled with silver ink and printed onto fourteen sheets of black card and arranged onto a box-shaped frame to create a criss-cross shape.

These gloves conjure up images of handling dirt, food & waste materials and are used to create a barrier between two elements.  On one side the doer – the carer or doctor and on the other the receiver – patient or subject, protecting the two sides; yet it is easy to think of them as protecting one side only.  Carers always wear latex gloves whilst visiting patients to protect themselves but never consider washings their hands with the gloves on so as not to cross-infect their patient.

Protective gloves are also an important part of the print studio used to keep the printer and his work clean from ink stains.

The title ‘hand out glove’ works on a few levels; volunteers wear gloves when handing out charity and also carers hand out potential infection, but also the gloves could not have been printed with the hands in the gloves.
