This is a silk screen print I did 17 years ago
when I was a lowly art student, wow that makes me feel old!
its 2ft 9" wide and 4ft 9" tall, it was done using procion dyes
that were painted onto a screen and then using this clear
gloopy stuff you used a huge squeegee and transferred
it onto the silk that was pinned to the printing table...
It was really exciting to do as you had no idea what you had already painted as the colours all dried to a very similar shade of colour so when you eventually transferred it to the silk all the colour sprang to life
This piece was for my final show, which was based on Gauguin...
I really miss the studio atmosphere with 14 like minded and very enthusiastic girls all working to produce something amazing ... I also miss the space and the facilities available while at college..
I made a frame from some battening and stretched and stapled it onto it
My tropical waterfall has been hung in 4 different houses and survived many moves...
If I can dig out my portfolio I will show you some more...
Due to lack of space it was stored in the shed,
so hopefully it hasn't gotten damp and damaged
Hope you are all having a good Monday
