About the Process
Also known as silk screening, serigraphy involves a series of layered colours of ink which come together to create a whole print. Areas of a framed screen are marked off using a non-porous stencil. Ink is applied to the entire frame, and the spaces not covered with a stencil will allow the paint to adhere to the paper below.
In the printing of Ted Harrison’s serigraphs, this process is repeated for each colour within the image. Because many of Ted Harrison’s paintings have many colours, the degree of difficulty is heightened. Ted Harrison’s artwork translates well to the medium of serigraphy because of the areas of solid colour and clear delineations. Limiting the print edition to a run of 200 maintains the unique artisan quality.
