"I found that I could say things with colour and shapes that I couldn’t say in any other way; things that I had no words for.” Georgia O’Keefe
Most of this series was based on the industrial heritage of the North East and was commissioned by a number of companies in 1986. They were created from drawings, sometimes completed on the spot, that were transferred directly to a photographic stencil and printed in approximately five colours.
Original screenprints exist only in the medium in which they were made, rather than as a reproduction of an image created in another medium. The term usually relates to the traditional processes of intaglio, lithography, relief print and screenprint (also known as serigraph). I printed these images on an improvised screenprinting table at home.
All screenprints are approximately 30” x 24” image size unmounted and unframed. Each print is made in limited editions of approximately thirty images
