This serigraph is an artisan print with a stunning paint-like vibrancy and viscosity. Also known as screen printing or silk screening, serigraphy is a printing process by which inks are forced through a mesh screen and applied to the surface of the print. The result is a brilliantly hued work of art that retains its beauty for a lifetime.
The vibrant reaction of colors to their surroundings is the subject of “Study for Homage to the Square, 1964” by Josef Albers. The German-born Albers (1888 – 1976) theorized that colors were not static, but reacted dynamically to adjacent shades. Albers was a mathematician and professor at the respected Bauhaus, but his abstract “Homage to the Square” series of paintings was his most prominent accomplishment. A series of hundreds of paintings and prints, it revealed the interplay among layered, colored squares. Albers’ acclaimed art, which is exhibited worldwide, significantly influenced the Hard Edge movement, Op artists and conceptual artists. Read More
