Sentinel: Sandersonia Twisted in Branches
This screen print was created using 3 stencils/screens, multiple colors, gradients, textures, and the reduction process through screen printing. All stencils were hand painted onto the screen using screen filler and then printed with a squeegee. The branch texture was created by flicking ink onto the surface of the screen with a toothbrush and then printed with a squeegee. The resulting effect made the edition varied, which caused each print to be an “edition variable”. This print combines my own ikebana creations with mokuhanga inspired effects.
