Silk Screen and Print Making By George Meltzer

My name is George Meltzer and I am theatrical lighting designer and I took silk screen and Print making because I thought that this class would really help me define myself creatively. I think that creativity is expressing yourself or an idea you have through a media or a style that is unique or different from the norm. So far this year, I was able to show my almost childish side though my artwork. I did this by using specific mediums such as toothpicks and string to give my prints character. I really took pride in this piece of art because it felt both genuine and creative. I was able to show how to I really enjoy art, but I'm not the most serious person.

Child's Play

This is Print is from a stuffed animal and I gave the print detail by using toothpicks, string and buttons.

The most important art element that I used was value. I successfully used value by adding the yarn to show off the detail. This gives the elephant depth and detail. The value of the yarn is darker than that of the ink of the elephant which stands out to the eye. Also by using button that match the value of the yarn the eyes do not seem to differ in detail which is what was needed because the eyes are not the main theme of this project.

I see you

This is a print using a plexiglass and a scrapper. The ink is collected in the groves and transfers onto the blank page.

Let's Go Sledding

This print is a foam print where I used two colors and there was a slight diffusion.

The most important art principle for my prints are Pattern. Pattern is used throughout the background and should work in harmony with my bear to give it context. I feel that I didn't use this to the best of my ability because when carving my background I made it look like a wall and the bear is hitting said wall. If I could do it again I would plan my background more and put more care into the way that each section is carved.
