David Bellingham

Cyan, Magenta, Lemon, Black

Published by Ingleby Gallery, this playful and beautifully executed new print by David Bellingham has been made using the letterpress printing process.

The chance discovery of a set of printers proofs, from a Duckworth and Co. Essences Ltd calendar of 1912, in a second hand bookshop in Sheffield, provided the source images for the print Cyan, Magenta, Lemon, Black. As a lemon ripens it changes colour from green to yellow, here the standard coloured inks of the four colour printing process echo this transit. Layers of ink – cyan magenta yellow black, are equated with the layers of a lemon – rind pith pulp juice. Yellow becomes lemon, juice becomes ink.

It was printed by Glasgow Press (

A concertina book Cyan, Magenta, Lemon, Black is also available. The book is signed and numbered in an edition of 100. Please email for further details.

Glasgow-based Bellingham publishes books, cards, photographs, prints and artist multiples through his imprint WAX366. Through WAX366, Bellingham has also collaborated with other artists and poets including Ian Hamilton Finlay, David Connearn and Thomas A. Clark.
