Buy: Ernest has worked with a master printer in Sheffield to produce a stunning limited edition print of 20 based on his 1988 piece Jaspar B and C
So, we are just putting the final touches to the show which includes paintings, drawings, early U-matic computer generated image works, an archive of experiments and a beautiful new light structure.
