A couple of months ago, I screen printed my toile design on fabric. I had been so busy with work at school since then, I didn’t have time to post these images until now. This design was originally printed on paper in lithographic method, and it only showed a small section of the toile design. I was asked by the curators at the PLUG Projects in Kansas City, if I could actually make a larger version of this to make it into a real wallpaper for an exhibition that they were preparing for the Los Caminos Gallery in St. Louis. You can see some images of the installation view and the show here.
I made two different versions, one in red ink and the other in blue ink. I think I printed about 16 yards of red toile fabric and about 8 yards of blue toile fabric.
Here are some pictures of the process:
After finishing all the toile pattern printing, I printed some more using one of the images I used for the toile pattern, and made another randomly printed design.
I would like to thank my fellow artists Mary Anne Jordan and Elena Brebenel for helping me with this project!!!
Now I need to figure out what I want to make with all these fabrics!
