Artist's description:

Portrait of a friend from a series of screenprint portraits, whose starting point is a simple snapshot. I then work out an abstract colour scheme based on the sitter's features or character. Here, her Indian heritage inspired the bright pinks and blues. The other forms are made from cutting black paper silhouettes and transferring them photographically to the screen which is then hand printed using hand mixed opaque inks, one ink and screen for each colour, superimposed one by one until the final 'drawing' the original photographic image, simplified and drawn on with lithographic crayons to 'tie the whole image together'. I can work up any portrait in this manner, and each time the inks/ colours, form are unique to the sitter.

Materials used:

Screenprint on Arches Paper, using butol based inks

Seetha (1991)
