Jeffrey Hirst is an artist who creates works that serve as fragments of a larger whole.
Artist Jeffrey Hirst uses alternative painting and printing processes to create abstract pieces that function as fragments. He creates installations where the sum of the parts is greater than the whole
Through his work, Hirst explores the relationship between man-made architectural forms and the natural landscape, especially the question of how these forces interact in an urban environment.
WORKSHOP: Silkscreen onto Encaustic
What is Screenprinting onto/into Encaustic? Screenprinting onto/into Encaustic is a workshop that covers the unique process of screenprinting pigment sticks, tinted gesso, and screenprinting inks below and onto encaustic surfaces. A simplified approach towards screenprinting makes this process easy to grasp and unites graphic print elements with painting surfaces and motifs. The class will focus on creating images that incorporate multiple printing passes from both fixed screenprinting stations to freeform printing approaches.
