A continuing project I am working on, using screen printing to create a repeating pattern.
I am interested in patterns which are fairly random and accidental- here I began combining simple shapes, created using roughly cut out paper, or thick stripes of ink with more detailed collage elements.
Over-printing created depth- using heavily diluted inks to create translucent layers on top of the darker colours. Initially I used quite a 1950s set of colours-the pale pinks and blues remind me of Formica table tops and Bakelite.
I then developed the original pattern into a small edition of 6 screen print, using bolder darker colours and a simpler repeat.
