Our upcoming edition with Esiri takes a lot of time to produce due how closely involved in the process the artist was, to create a method unique to her practice. The main body of the print is a hand-pulled 5 layer silkscreen to which 8 hand-painted layers are then printed. To produce these layers, Esiri hand-paints onto translucent xerox sheets which are then translated into separate silkscreen overlays for each colour to be printed on top of the main body of the print. In the pictures you can see her holding one of the translucent xerox sheets, which then get turned into a green overlay like the one that’s pictured as well.
Such a special print, anyone going to pick it up next week? 👀
