“The Safest Place" is a screen print Series 

 I’ve always wanted to continue working with screen-printing but it has been a technique that has always felt to rigid for the way I like to work.  I hadn’t figured out a way to utilize this technique to suit my needs. I decided to work with the screen-printing and inks in a freer more painterly way.  Using paintbrushes and applying the inks differently than the normal printing process (Alla Gerhard Richter) to experiment with opening up the gestures.  Not every print was perfection but the outcome saw some glimmers of exciting expressive marks with contrasts that worked in the finished pieces. Looking for other options to display the 2D prints were pushed further in line with my practice and were made sculptural. I rolled and stood them on their ends, taking cues from Anna Barriball an artist I’ve looked at for her sense of working with paper in sculptural ways.I also attached some to the wall with red Perspex pieces that I cut and heated to manipulate into shapes.With development of this series I explored new ways of material experimentation with using screen printing in a painterly way. Finding new materials to bend, fold, stand on end and adapt continues to be a line of inquiry into my extended painting practice.
