Jisook Park

Jisook Park (b.1963) expresses the dynamic circulating energy of life on her canvas. Working with pen, ink and acrylic, the artist works spontaneously – the network of lines and organic forms flow freely onto her canvas. Her artwork depicts the inter-connectivity of life that binds us to nature.

 

Serigraphy (Screen Printing)

Screen printing, also known as serigraphy, is a method of creating an image on paper, fabric or some other object by pressing ink through a screen with areas blocked off by a stencil. A blade or squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink, and a reverse stroke then causes the screen to touch the substrate momentarily along a line of contact. This causes the ink to wet the substrate and be pulled out of the mesh apertures as the screen springs back after the blade has passed. Traditionally the process was called screen printing or silkscreen printing because silk was used in the process prior to the invention of polyester mesh.

Screen printing first appeared in a recognizable form in China during the Song Dynasty (960–1279 AD). It was then adapted by other Asian countries like Japan, and was furthered by creating newer methods.

Screen printing was largely introduced to Western Europe from Asia sometime in the late 18th century, but did not gain large acceptance or use in Europe until silk mesh was more available for trade from the east and a profitable outlet for the medium discovered.

The technique is used both for making fine art prints and for commercial applications.
