Screen prints is a wonderful category to browse - with lots of exciting work by contemporary NZ printmakers like Tony Ogle arriving every week. A screenprint is a colour separated and printed print, usually made by the printmaker in his or her studio or the artist works alongside a master screenprinter to create their vision. Screenprinting is a printing method that uses a woven mesh to support an ink blocking stencil. The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate. A roller or squeegee is moved across the screen stencil forcing or pumping ink past the threads of the woven mesh in the open areas. Screen-printing is a also stencil method of print making in which a design is imposed on a screen of silk or other fine mesh, with blank areas coated with an impermeable substance, and ink is forced through the mesh onto the printing surface. Screenprints were known traditionally as "silk screens" because silk was used for the screens but now polyester is used and this term is falling out of popular usage. Also known in the US as serigraphs.
