SERIGRAPH

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Silk screen or "Serigraphy is the stencil process of printmaking. Widely used in commercial sign printing, the application to original prints may involve up to 100 separate screens to compose a finished image. Modern synthetic fabric has replaced traditional silk to make the tightly stretched screens. The masking stencils are then imbedded in the fabric, and the ink is pressed through with a squeegee onto the paper. Drawing on a wide variety of techniques and procedures, the printmaker collaborates with the artist to achieve an effect unique to each individual artist. The serigraphic process offers techniques that are unachievable in other printing methods. It is capable of printing heavy layers of ink and producing a surface of texture. Large areas of flat color are best printed with screen printing. . It is best known for its rich and vibrant color. These and other factors have been responsible for screen printing developing the reputation as a painter's media. Serigraphy has grown over the past twenty years to become the most popular method of printing in the art world with both artists and publishers.

The first step in this time consuming procedure, which frequently takes up to three months to complete, begins with the "Chromist" (one who works with color). He analyzes the painting or moquette provided by the artist. Hours are spent studiously dissecting the painting or maquette into individual colors, relying solely upon experience to decide which colors, in what order, by which process, and by what drawing technique. Like having an entire chess game mapped out in ones own mind before moving one piece, the Chromist begins the first of dozens of drawings, each representing a different color that will be layered , one on top of the other over the next several weeks. The chromist works with the master printer to mix exacting colors that are printed one at a time until the artist gives his final nod of approval. The artist frequently inspects the work in progress and makes suggestions and corrections. When the edition is complete and passed its final inspection from the curation department, the artist signs and numbers each piece.
