Peter Gabriel “Car” Limited Fine Art Print – Signed by Peter Gabriel

Medium: Silkscreen in 22 colours plus 2 glazes on Somerset tub sized 410gsm

Car is one of a collection of limited edition archival inkjet prints published to celebrate a catalogue of truly remarkable and unique soundworks by Peter Gabriel.

Car was the first of Peter Gabriel’s four eponymously titled solo albums following his departure from Genesis (the ‘car’ label arose simply from the need to differentiate between the four). Storm Thorgerson remembered that the cover was inspired by a rainy cab journey though Trafalgar Square:

“On the bonnet of this vehicle sat myriad drops that were being shaken by the vibrating cab…..I thought, ‘That looks cool, can I duplicate it one day?’, which is how Peter Gabriel came to be sitting, looking furtive in the front seat of my beloved Lancia Flavia which had been heavily dowsed with a garden hose, the car not Peter, I hasten to add. I feel that what makes this shot distinctive is the hand colouring (the blue) and the fact that each individual highlight was scraped clean with a scalpel by a very patient Richard Manning. This low-key portrait approach was a credit to Peter Gabriel’s modesty. He appeared similarly obscured in the next two albums namely Melt and Scratch, in which the designs were more concerned with idea, mood, and evocation than with cosmetics and how good looking we made him. Don’t get me wrong…he’s not bad looking, is our Pete. Sanity rather than vanity.”

Car comprises two editions: a smaller print (the edition of 99) and a larger print (the edition of 25). Every print in this collection has been signed by Peter Gabriel himself. Car is unique in this collection, in that the smaller print is a silkscreen print with spot glazing.
