This is a serigraph (or screen print) exploring a very varied layering process with both transparent and opaque water based screen printing inks, which I mixed with powdered pigments and a transparent base. It is part of a large series printed through the same screens but using different colors at different stages of the printing process. I was also exploring the use of screens with varying mesh sizes to achieve larger deposits of ink, creating a very textural approach to what is normally considered a flat planographic medium.
This piece is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.

Andrea Epstein layers shape, texture, color, and form as an ode to the abstract expressionist tradition. By combining various relief printing techniques such as collographs and linocuts, Andrea embarks on an unchartered journey of self-discovery and artistic expression. Serigraphy and monoprinting allow Andrea to achieve a variety of textures and colors unknown to paint. Her prints are literal representations of the creative process. She received a B.F.A. in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design and an M.F.A. in painting from the Yale School of Art.
