“Fine Mesh” Print Group Show Rationale
I created this 3-color screen print titled "Grave Wave 3D" for the group show Fine Mesh at True Love Tattoo and Art Gallery in Seattle. The opening reception was on Thursday, November 12, 2015. Artists featured in this show were Ally Creighton, Nicole Mills, James Stipes, Kerstin Gaurdins, Battershell, Donica Ida, Klint Flentge, Riley Hoonan, Curtis Ashby, Glenn Newcomer, Derek Vander Griend and Amy Huber. For this show, I created a 3-color screen print on paper. To prepare for the show, I burned a screen with the image that I drew and used Photoshop to size. After the screen was burned, I set it up on my screen printer and adjusted the registration so that when I printed the three different colors, it would make a 3-D effect. I learned how to print multiple colors on a design and how to adjust the registration. This project is important to my portfolio because it shows that I can illustrate work as well as print it.
