Angus Fairhurst
When I Woke up in the Morning, the Feeling was Still There was made from a photograph taken in the artist's studio showing the same suited man featured in his seminal work Man with Dream Colours from the early 1990s. The caption refers to that 'just-come-to-after-the-night-before' feeling. It alludes, perhaps, to a hangover or a night of drugs and love but is not specific about the object or the nature of the 'feeling'. The work shows a man holding a yellow flat square; the square, however, doesn't quite fit the space allowed for it, catching a fleeting, ambivalent sense reflected in the title. In the artist's own words, 'I wanted to play on the mis-alignment of the hard form and the notion of the feeling, both physical and emotional, which is something you cannot be so sure about'.
Technique
Three-colour screenprint with varnish, printed on 300gsm Somerset Satin paper. Published as part of The London Portfolio by The Paragon Press in 1992.

Screenprint
Also known as silkscreen. In its simplest form, this is a technique by which the artist blocks out a section of a fine, woven screen (formerly made of silk), which is stretched over a frame. With a squeegee, ink is pressed evenly through the screen on to a sheet of paper beneath. Only the areas of the screen not blocked out will be printed. The artists will use as many of these transparent sheets (separations) as the numbers of colours required in the print, and each sheet must be aligned very carefully with the others. The films are transferred on to the silkscreens via a light-sensitive process: only the areas which are painted by the artist will be blocked out and will not allow ink through.
