Fast Signs - Strokes

Post by Lisa Moncrieff » Thu Dec 15, 2011 10:47 am

Fast signs use their old faithful PNC vinyl cutter to produce this vinyl flooring work.

The work was carried out on behalf of Glasgow based artist Jim Lambie and was installed in the Gallery Modern Art, Glasgow.

Strokes the curved comb effect design is cut from vinyl as a single graphic. The graphic is cut hundreds of times at approximately 4ft x 8ft. The entire floor has in a single colour of vinyl applied to it. In this case “white”. Then, one graphic at a time, is hand applied, over lapping and interlocking until the entire floor space has been covered. Application time took approximately 4 days for our team of installers.

The Strokes floor piece which was the platform for several other pieces by the artist’s solo show attracted over 310,000 visitors through the doors in several months, making it the most popular show of the year for the Glasgow gallery.
