About this work of Art
‘Mudlarkers II’ is a river-scape of the River Thames in London on a stormy day. This silkscreen print sees ‘mudlarkers’ – people searching for scraps and broken bits of history in the muddy shore of the river.
This 7 colour screen print by Tim Southall is printed on Somerset tub size, a heavyweight 300 gsm handmade paper from St Cuthbert’s Mill in Somerset. The print is in a limited edition of 15 and signed by the artist.
A colour silkscreen print is created by building up an image with several layers of individually printed colours. This process is called colour separation. Each colour has its own ‘positive’ which is made on acetate or tracing paper (see photos for reference) which is then exposed to a UV light with a screen coated in photo-sensitive emulsion.
