original – Screen Print – Arisaema consanguineum


these are the first in a new series of very limited signed editions,  5 of the edition are available unframed

I was intrigued to see if I could develop my Ink Shoots series with a screen printing process. I wanted to try a few things, the reintroduction of colour to the black and white image, and also the introduction of some kind of background element. I opted to work with geometric images in the background as I needed to find something simple enough to set of the detail in the plant images bit also something bold enough to stand strongly with them.

I used a simplified colour palate from my original colour matching for my water colour paintings and used the cataphyll* and stem colours in the geometric shapes, I was really wowed with the block colours and decided to really punch them up to compliment the almost black details. I have to say I loved making these, I really enjoyed the screen printing process, and I was also so please to be using the resources that I have worked with over a number of years to create new pieces of work with punch and vigour.
