Almost There – Camille And Broncia

8 Jun

Numbers 6 and 7 of my series of 8 women artists in silkscreen are the tragic French sculptor, Camille Claudel and the Austrian Expressionist painter, Broncia Koller-Pinell. I’ve produced each of these in editions of 25, all hand-printed in Daler Rowney System 3 acrylic pigment mixed with screenprinting medium onto a beautiful antique paper, creamy, lightly textured, medium weight, deckle-edged, produced by TH Saunders, an old British paper mill, sadly no longer in business. So once I’ve used up this supply of paper, that’s it.

These will be launched at the London Art Car Boot Fair in Brick Lane on Sunday the 14th June. I’ll be there with Dylan’s Book Bus and fellow artist Simon Dark.

Frida Blue

And the last of the silkscreens of women artists that I am working on, the iconic Frida Kahlo. This is the first stage, after drawing the image gently onto the fabric with a soft pencil, I have painted the image with Speedball Diazo Drawing Fluid. Once it’s dry, the next stage will be to squeegee the Filler Liquid across it to form the stencil. This series of 8 women artists will be launched at the London Art car Boot Fair next Sunday, June the 14th. It’s over in the East End, in Brick Lane, if anyone’s in London on the day 😀
