One is the ‘missing element’ from THE PERIODIC TABLE OF BOWIE – that is BOWIE’s own periodic cell. It is one of 300 signed and numbered prints in metallic silver and orange on 350gsm cartridge paper. Purchasers of this work are also given a signed and numbered 594 x 841mm (23.4 x 33.1) copy of THE PERIODIC TABLE OF BOWIE printed on 350gsm cartridge paper. The two works are expected to be displayed together by the owner to create this special edition. This copy of THE PERIODIC TABLE OF BOWIE is larger than the offset version of the work.
The colours of the Silver Bowie cell reflect the hair colour of the Ziggy Stardust period and the glossy colour on the jumpsuit worn in the Ziggy Stardust performance in 1973 that Robertson first saw and made him such a fan of the artist back in those far off headstrong days of the seventies.
