"Grove Street Tracks" by Ricardo Roig Limited Edition Hand Cut Screen Prints
Limited Edition Hand Cut Paper Stencil Screen Prints.
These original, fine works of art are made from paper stencils by cutting shapes out of paper with an exact-o-knife and then using a squeegee to push the mixed acrylic inks through these openings when it is attached to a screen. The porous screen allows the ink to travel through the cut-openings thereby creating a very sharp-edged graphic effect for this unique printmaking technique. Each color is a different stencil that is layered upon one another as the puzzle is pieced together and the image is formed.
The print becomes a culmination of color shapes built upon these relationships. In celebration of the heroes of woodblock prints and a furthering of the torch in new innovative approaches to the printed image, these works promote a renewed sense of beauty juxtaposed with masterful technique. Each piece is made by hand, signed and dated by Ricardo.
