Multi layered screen prints for Simon Kirk

We have been screen printing some beautiful, multi layered editions for artist Simon Kirk recently. The original pieces by Simon are made using collage so our challenge was to create a screen print which had the feel of the original. We printed them in around 10 layers using semi-transparent inks to achieve the right look.

Here are some photos of the development of the prints.
