Exposing screens is something I still think is magical. Like darkroom photography you watch an image appear out of the darkness. And that screen when it’s first made and hasn’t been stained with ink is a just beautiful.
I get too attached to my screens. But this is why I’m a printer, it brings me unrivalled joy.
I decided for my press pack hand in to make a hand silk screened press pack. It was a days extra work but I think it was worth it.
The tactility of my CV makes it more crafted, more cared about and speaks about the handcrafted, time taking, personal touch of the maker that craft entails.
