Jasper Knight when in London in 2007 took it upon himself to venture down the River Thames by hiring a Tug Boat, upon this inspirational journey it was clear by days end that this area was a historical working harbour, the source of inspiration inspired him to capture the images by making them as fine art silkscreen works to which he was very pleased with, he felt the interpretation shows contrast strength yet a gentleness of unassuming power, the London sky really makes colour a strong contrasting feature yet shows the softness at the same time. Jasper usually uses a mixed media for his paintings; enamel, Masonite, Perspex, old signs, building materials, anything with an industrial feel. It was an exciting challenge for Jasper to use the different medium of silkscreen for these new works and he was delighted with the result. So are we at Etching House.

What is a Silk screen print –
The printing process is very labour intensive; from the creation of designs, to transfer to the screen, mixing of colours, and printing of an edition. Typically a silkscreen printer allows 10% more of what he wants for an edition size to account for images rejected due to errors in printing. In my printing, large prints can take 3-4 months to complete while a small print can be finished in as little as one month.

A silkscreen printer usually makes a limited edition of his designs. An edition of a fine art print includes all images published at the same time. Editions of silkscreens range from 1 to 500 prints. Edition size can be determined by the printing process itself, as when a stencil wears out, but usually the edition is limited by the artist. Since the stencils are destroyed after printing, each edition is unique.

Prints are signed and numbered in the bottom margin of the print with what looks like a fraction. The upper number represents the impression within the series and the lower number indicates the edition size. A print marked 2/25 is the second of twenty-five images. The number indicates the order in which prints were signed, not necessarily the order in which the impressions were pulled. This, plus the fact that later impressions are sometimes superior to earlier pulls, means that lower numbers do not generally indicate better quality impressions.

Silkscreen Printing, also goes by the term: Serigraph. The Word Serigraph is a combination of two Greek words, seicos, meaning silk, and graphos, meaning writing. Silkscreen Printing and other stencil-based printing methods are the oldest forms of printmaking.

Printmaking is a process for producing editions (multiple originals) of artwork. Painting, on the other hand, is a process for producing a single original piece of artwork. In printmaking, each print in an edition is considered an original work of art, not a copy.

Silkscreen Printing is a stencilling method that involves printing ink through stencils that are supported by a porous fabric mesh stretched across a frame called a screen. Silkscreen Printing is ideally suited for bold and graphic designs.

Silkscreen Printing can be traced as far back as 9000 BC, when stencils were used to decorate Egyptian tombs and Greek mosaics. From 221-618 AD stencils were used in China for production of images of Buddha. Japanese artists turned screen printing into a complex art by developing an intricate process wherein a piece of silk was stretched across a frame to serve as the carrier of hand cut stencils.

Silkscreen printing found its way to the west in the 15th century. The original material used in screen printing was silk.
Hence the name Silkscreen printing. Today polyester is the fabric of choice.

In the United States, screen printing took on the status of art in the 1930s when a group of artists working with the Federal Art Project experimented with the technique and subsequently formed the National Serigraphic Society. American artists began making “fine art” screen- prints and devised the term “Serigraph” to distinguish fine art from commercial screen printing. During the 1960s, Serigraphy was popular with POP artists, who were attracted to its bold areas of flat colour.
