EXHIBITION OF MURAL AND ALL PRINTED ART - GALERIE BABARA VON STECHOW

An exhibition consisting of a series of serigraphs and a set of paintings comprising a 22 foot mural focusing on the narrative elements and the visual stimuli of this American City. Click on the image below for a larger view and see the article in the Robb Report under the PRESS section.

SERIGRAPHS - TALES OF THE CITY

Serigraphs are not your usual prints. As many as 35 colors are individually pushed through hand cut silk screens onto pure archival rag paper for a very small series of prints. The print run is absolute as all plates and preparation materials are destroyed at the end of the production.

In the printing process, color rebalancing occurs as an intense awareness of the new situations present themselves with all the random chance accidents that can arise with each color pass. Areas that originally called for 10 colors can scream out to be left alone. Many expressionist color harmonies and discords present themselves along the way when least expected.

As with the paintings, the creative process exists to tell the narrative story of man in a modern urban situation. The goal is never to be decorative or at all imitative of a painting. These prints are created solely to express new thoughts about the city using an ink and paper medium.

The print program is the brainchild of Ms. Barbara von Stechow, putting together the artist with master printer Gary Lichtenstein of Family Dog, Fillmore West, John Cage and Karl Benjamin fame.

The artist is shown working with the printer Gary Lichtenstein. Mr. Lichtenstein owner of SOMA Fine Art Press, San Francisco,CA now at The White Barn Group in Ridgefield,CT. has produced serigraphs for Ken Price, Karl BenjaminRobert Fried, Jack Michelene, The Merce Cunningham Dance Co,Ting Shao Kuang and others.
