A pair of swan stand in a wintery landscape as dawn breaks in the distance. The new day is a new start, optimism in what could be perceive as a bleak time of the year for the Swans. This 6 colour silkscreen is hand-printed on 250 gram handmade Italian Rosapina Fabriano and comes in an edition of 50.
A colour silkscreen print is created by building up an image with several layers of individually printed colours. This process is called colour separation. Each colour has its own 'positive' which is made on acetate or tracing paper (see photos for reference) which is then exposed to a UV light with a screen coated in photo-sensitive emulsion.
This print will be carefully rolled in sent in a strong parcel tube.
