Intimacy by Thomas Blackshear II
Certainly one of my most favorite pieces of art to come through the shop in a long time…. Intimacy by Thomas Blackshear II was produced through the exacting serigraph process, using more than 120 hand-applied colors. Also commonly known as silk-screening, serigraphy is a time-honored technique, based on stenciling, for creating prints by hand. Ink or paint is carefully brushed through a fine fabric screen, portions of which have been masked for impermeability. For each color, a different portion of the screen must be masked, and each color must be allowed to dry before the next is applied. Our fine art serigraphs are created from an original painting, and the artist can see and adjust the evolution of the colors through many proofing stages. The depth of color in the resulting fine art serigraph is almost luminous.
