About Judy Staring

This limited edition silkscreen print features the album artwork from Catherine Wheel's 1995 single, Judy Staring at the Sun. Storm described to Hypergallery the origins of the Judy Staring lyrics and how he interpreted this visually for the cover: “Judy Staring at the Sun is the full title and is an image designed for a single from the band Catherine Wheel in 1995. The song concerned a friend of theirs who was unfortunately a heroin addict and became removed and slowly more distant. In the lyrics it was noted particularly that she didn't blink whilst looking at the sun. I was trying to represent the icy world of detachment. Our Judy is surrounded incongruously by ice, she can therefore witness the outside world but is removed and protected from it. She is naked to represent both her vulnerability and her uncaring attitude. She doesn't mind how she appears to others, shielded as she thinks, by her invisible cloak of heroin (please do not try this exercise at home with a younger sibling, however great your rivalry, thank you).” A weighty Somerset paper has been used for this edition, printed in archival inks by the renowned Coriander Studios in London.
