Vale Skies Print by Tara Dean


Hand screen printed with paper cut stencils on handmade recycled paper. The artist says: "The view from my top window looks onto a red bricked building, looking to the left I find an ever-changing view of the Clwydian Hills, this and mostly natural environments inspire my images."

Glazed with anti reflective glass which is scratch resistant and easy to clean. This minimises light or images being reflected by the glass so the viewer can see and appreciate the artwork with clarity.

"Drawing is the most important part of my practice. The screen printing process allows for details found, initial lines and marks to transform. I illustrate patterns, redefine the value of line work, make stencils and layer colours. Handmade paper has recently become part of my work again and a way of recycling the paper stencils I use. I am experimenting with achieving a smoother paper surface for printing on." - Tara Dean
