Screenprint is done!
In February 2008, Ben, Wendy, Daniel and Brandi of the USF printmaking department, under the guidance of Bradlee Shanks, produced a small edition of screenprints for me. Called Birdwatch, it is printed on Fabriano Artistico and measures 22 x 27 inches. I am interested in the possibilities it brings to surface and ways of breaking up form into mark and gesture. The "before" image below is my (frosted) mylar layout, created in layers with inks and Sharpie. The complete image shows the transparent reds and deeply worked tonalities throughout.
