About Scratch

Scratch 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. The photograph, by Hipgnosis photographer Peter Christopherson, was taken down town in New York on a cold and windy day, a couple of blocks away from where Peter Gabriel would later buy an apartment. The 2D/3D concept was a recurring theme for Hipgnosis studios at the time. Here, Peter is thrusting his hands out of the picture and back onto the photo surface, scratching it into strips. Peter recalled, "The artwork was done with Hipgnosis. We did this in New York and it was cold and snowy. Storm had had the idea of the nails tearing away at the paper of the image." Hipgnosis simply glued strips of torn paper on to the original monotone image and used Tippex to tart up the joins. Classic Hipgnosis: cut and paste perfection. Whilst the photographic image is reproduced in high definition, the monochrome ink works on this Somerset paper to give the print a beautifully soft quality; the result is a really unique and striking piece of Hipgnosis history. Scratch 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.
