Refers to a silk-screen fine art print, usually a limited edition series. These prints are created by the silk-screen process using poster inks and are typically matted and framed under glass like other fine art prints and watercolor works.
A serigraph is an original silk-screen color print. Serigraphy (or silk screening) is a stencil process in which ink is forced onto the material through the meshes of a silk or organdy screen, which has been prepared to have pervious printing areas and impervious nonprinting areas.
Silk-screening, which is also referred to as serigraphy or screen-printing, is a centuries-old process that originated in China. The image is divided, as it were, by a color, with a screen corresponding to each shade of ink that will appear on the final surface-paper, canvas, fabric, etc. The ink is applied to a screen, transferring to the paper only through the porous segments. A separate screen must be created for each color. On average, it takes between 80 to 100 screens to create a serigraph. The elements are hand-drawn onto Mylar and photographically exposed onto each screen. Inks are matched to the hues of the original and custom mixed. Each edition takes approximately eight weeks to complete: four to five people handle the several stages of the process, and 80 to 90 percent of the production time is devoted to making color separations and the screens.
a print made using a stencil process in which an image or design is superimposed on a very fine mesh screen and printing ink is squeegeed onto the printing surface through the area of the screen that is not covered by the stencil
also called silk screening - A stencil method of print making in which an image is imposed on a screen with paper underneath. Ink is forced through the mesh and onto the paper surface. A separate screen is needed for each color.
literally silk screen print. The ink is squeezed onto the print surface through a mesh of silk or nylon gauze that has been prepared with blocked out areas. Printing process used for large scale printing i.e. posters, or fabric printing i.e. curtain material, or for special picture making processes that can be used without heavy duty presses. Favourite process for ORIGINAL PRINT production for many artists.
A print created by using the process of using stencils made on tightly stretched silk. Ink is forced through the silk and onto paper to make copies of the image. The process frequently is called "Silksreening" and the prints are called "serigraphs" or "silkscreens." Because each color requires a separate screen and a separate step in the printing process, serigraphs often come in small editions.
Serigraphy is a color stencil printing process in which a special paint is forced through a fine screen onto the paper beneath. Areas that do not print are blocked with photo sensitive emulsion that has been exposed with high intensity arc lights. A squeegee is pulled from back to front, producing a direct transfer of the image from screen to paper. A separate stencil is required for each color and one hundred colors or more may be necessary to achieve the desired effect. A serigraph, also referred to as a screen print, differs from other graphics in that its color is made up of paint films rather than printing ink stains. This technique is extremely versatile, and can create effects similar to oil color and transparent washes, as well as gouache and pastel.
or sometimes called a Silkscreen comes from Serigraphy. Serigrapy is the actual term for the silkscreen printing process where limited editions are created by screening the colors of an image onto the surface of canvas or fine art paper. Each color is separated and then transferred onto a stencil, which is actually a stretched sheet of silk where the printer has blocked out areas. Ink is then transferred through the unblocked areas and this process is done over and over until the process is complete. Silkscreens are usually overviewed and approved by the artist and then hand signed. Every color applied in a serigraph requires a separate screen to print. If there are 3 colors of green, then there were 3 separate screens for just the green. There is no blending except in a technique called FOUNTAIN. In this technique, different colored inks are applied as stripes on one screen. The printing process causes the colors to blend together as in a rainbow. Each subsequent print is slightly more blended than the last until after a very small number, the rainbow of the fountain is just a muddy color
Print artwork that is created by pressing inks through finely woven screens. Each color in the final work has a unique and separate screen associated with it or is created by layering multiple inks to achieve an exact color. The artist and master printer work closely to ensure the precision of the color, shape, and texture as each screen is laid down, one on top of the other.
A printing technique that makes use of a squeege to force ink directly onto paper or canvas through a stencil. The stencil is a (silk) screen with non-image sections blocked so that ink will not pass through. Serigraphy uses heavily pigmented inks rather than the ink stains used in other printing methods.
Serigraph, screen print or silkscreen is a stencil process using a mesh that is stretched over a frame. Ink or paint films is forced through openings in the mesh, which can be blocked by a variety of methods.
A complex stenciling process using a fine mesh of polyester or nylon material stretched tightly across a frame. A separate screen is created for every color that exists in the original art. For each screen, selective areas of the screen are blocked out with filler, while the other areas where the color is to be placed on the paper or canvas, and are left open. The ink is pushed through the screen with a squeegee, only passing through the portions of the mesh that are not blocked by the filler. The paper below accepts the print and an image is built up. Screenprints are often made with 40 or more colors. A silkscreen can be recognized by the boldness and evenness of color, and upon examination the print can be seen to be made up of many different layers of ink – one layer for each color.
Serigraphy is a silk screening process. This process can produce prints of startling clarity or subdued elegance depending upon the artist's wishes. To make a serigraph from an original piece of art, every color in the original must be identified and separated. After the separation has been made, a screen is made for each individual color. Those areas that are not to be printed are blocked out to prevent the transfer of ink or paint to paper or canvas. The paper or canvas is then placed under the screen and the ink is forced through the open mesh. This process is repeated for each individual color. Serigraphs can have up to hundreds of separate colors. Although the process is extremely time consuming, this high quality process produces a beautiful work of art that is also affordable.
The serigraphic process incorporates the use of fine mesh screens to hand separate the colors of the image. Originally, these screens were made of silk, hence the name by which this process is also known - silk-screening. To produce a serigraphic print, a separate stencil-like screen is made for each area that is to be printed in one color of ink. The ink is then squeegeed through the screen onto the paper. The inks sit on top of the heavy paper on which the final serigraph is produced. Because the ink is not absorbed by the paper as in other processes, the final serigraphic print actually looks like a painting on paper.
A print made by the silk-screen process involving the use of stencils. Paint is applied to a fabric screen, penetrating areas not blocked by a stencil. Several stencils are used to produce a multicolored print. As a commercial medium, silk-screen printing has been used by such modern artists as William Tolliver.
A serigraph (pronounced sear-E-graph) is produced by the silk-screen or screen-print printing process. For each desired color, a photographically-prepared or hand-cut stencil is created indicating where the color will be applied. Then the stencil is adhered to a silk or nylon mesh screen, and paint of that color is forced through the screen onto the paper. The resulting process creates a luxurious, vibrant image.
(Also known as a silkscreen.) Artwork created from a stenciled design worked into a nylon or wire mesh. The design is created by blocking out areas that are not to be printed with a greasy substance applied to the screen, or with paper or other material. Once the design is in place, the mesh is positioned over high-quality paper and ink is pushed through it with a squeegee; areas that are not blocked are printed.A different set of screens--and an additional pass through the press--is required for each color the artist wishes to print. When the artist, either alone or working with a master printer, creates the screens and prints the edition, generally several hundred of an image, each print is considered a "multiple original." Some reproductions also are now produced using serigraphic techniques, and are called serigraphs.
A term used to describe silk screen prints, or prints where flat colour is built up in layers to create an image. Each colour requires a separate screen, and therefore makes it a costly process for doing limited edition print runs.
Silkscreen print whose color areas are paint films rather than printing-ink stains. The direct technique is versatile enough to produce an unlimited range of colors and depths, which justifies to some extent the opinion that serigraphy is as much a painter's as a printmaker's medium.
Basically a stencil or silkscreen process. Was given the name after WW1, by a noted art historian, Carl Zigrosser. It was established as an art form in the 1950's. A direct printing process, the image isn't reversed like in lithography. A screen of silk, nylon or wire mesh is tightly stretched across a frame. A design is made in stencil form on the mesh by blocking out portions. The remaining open areas will let the ink through to the paper below. Another method of stencil making; using tusche and glue, where the artist draws on the screen with tusche, then coats the entire area with a fast-drying glue. The tusche is dissolved and the hard glue forms the stencil. You could also use a series of acetate overlays. One overlay for each color. The artist draws the image on the overlay with a light-blocking substance. Then the printer exposes the image and the light passes through the acetate. This process called, "cutting" the screen leaves the stencil.
A print created with silk screens; ink is pressed through the screens, color by color. Because each color requires a separate screen and a separate step in the printing process, serigraphs often come in small editions.
