George’s Serigraphs

George’s technique in the production of his serigraphs (silk screen prints) has been compared to that of the Japanese master printmakers of centuries past.  He relies almost completely on meticulously hand cut paper stencils to obtain his precisely registered multicolored prints.

The artist achieves a spatial manipulation by creating an interaction of flat, geometric areas with pseudo geometric solids and, most importantly, through the use of color. 
His mastery of complementary and graduated colors lends itself to a visual feast on paper.  Many of the prints are built up with the use os as many as 27 different color runs. Because the artist maintains a high standard of craftsmanship most of his print editions are kept very small.

It should be noted that the museum quality mat for each print has been cut to match the contour of each of the prints. Listed are the edition size, dimensions of the width and height of the image on the paper. The outside dimensions of the mats are in correspondence with the grouping of the different sizes  below.

George earned a BFA degree from Pratt Institute while employed as a graphic and packaging designer in New York City. He started printing serigraphs for his Master’s Thesis at Hunter College of the City of New York.  He taught at Suffolk County Community College while earning an additional Master’s Degree at the State University at Stony Brook.  He then taught at Parsons School of Design and retired from the Fashion Institute of Technology as chair of the BFA Packaging Design
