Richard Humphreys focuses on the medium of screen printing and how he lets the process influence his approach to creating work. Screen printing can be a highly technical process, but in this workshop Richard takes us back to the basics, playing with the way deconstructed images interact as they are layered on top of each other, one color at a time.
Manual printing is an imperfect process and Richard uses this workshop as a form of expression versus worrying over perfect technique, which makes this Visiting Artist Series perfect for anyone interested in screen printing, all experience levels and curiosity seekers are welcome to join.
Richard will have several screens set up with various shapes for an abstract print. Participants will each print a layer of ink from each screen, and through each screen will determine the way shapes interact with each other on paper.
In between each screen, participants will have the option of creating a smaller print from linoleum blocks. At the end of the workshop, participants are encouraged to ask any questions about the process, technique, resources, and Richards approach to design and to take home their artwork.
