Printmaking: Screenprinting, Paper, Ink, gold leaf on Paper.
Lisa Hunt’s Ombré Coils is unique print is achieved by using a "split fountain" of turquoise and gold metallic ink while screen-printing. The gold concentric circles on a turquoise background are achieved by printing the ink on gold leaf paper. The print is trimmed with the image area butting the edge of the paper. Because of the nature of split fountain printing each print is unique. The concentric circles are a motif the artist often employs in her work to meditative effect. Signed and numbered on the verso.
The use of gold and gold leaf in Lisa’s art comes from her desire to illuminate her patterns in a way that allows them to endure. Allusions to everything from Art Deco and folk art to typographic elements repurposed and reimagined and the natural world inform her. Through Lisa’s appreciation of indigenous textiles and the decorative arts she seeks to create a visual vocabulary.
