The term serigraph, silk screen, and silk print are synonyms for prints made by a stencil method. The basic components of the screen print are the stencil, the screen, and the squeegee. The artist prepares a tightly stretched screen, usually of silk or mylar, and blocks out areas not to be printed by filling up the mesh of the screen with a varnish-like substance. Paper is placed under the screen and with the squeegee, ink is forced through the still open mesh onto the paper. Each color is applied separately. This process was developed in the 19th century.
Limited edition serigraphs are hand-pulled with up to 100 colors, in editions of 200 artist signed proofs on fine quality paper, smooth edge. These serigraphs look beautiful framed (under glass) and work well for areas where an original oil painting may not work, such as a garden room or conservatory.
All serigraphs are $600 unframed. Please contact Bo Artist Representation for purchase and shipping information. Sales tax may apply.
