Egon And The Paper

Here’s the last of my series of screenprints of favourite artists for a while. I prepared a screen to take to last Sunday’s Art Car Boot Fair in London’s Brick Lane and started to print it during the afternoon. I used a different vintage paper to the one I used for all the women artists. I used a British made W.S.H & Co for Egon Shiele, no longer made unfortunately. It has a beautiful deckle edge and a slightly rough texture and is a silvery white. Gorgeous. Can’t get paper like this in Britain any more. Such a shame.

    Very expressive–the humanity shows through. Your experience with the longer available WSH & Co. paper provides support to my tendency to hoard paper! It’s not a disorder, it’s a wise decision.

      oh yes, hoard away!!!!! I even keep paper I’ve used but don’t like what I’ve done on it, because it can always be recycled as a collage or drawn over.
