Silkscreen paint on canvas
Dimensions: 90cm (H) x 177cm (W) / 35.4" (H) x 69.7" (W)
Note: Actual colours may vary due to photography & computer settings.
The artist would like to call the unique, one -of-a-kind paintings, created by a combined procedure of silkscreen printing and painting, Screenpaintings.
Silk screening technique used here is not treating it as a machine in Andy Warhol's days but as another type of artist's brush.
Positive films are created when the artist paints on them using large Chinese brushes and ink. During the process of exposing the screens, some marks are lost due to the fragile nature of the ink on the surface of the film. The artist is intrigued by what is captured in the final screen and views this as a 'spontaneous' collaboration with silkscreen maker.
