ABOUT THE WORKThis artwork with the title 'Sphere' is part of the series "Black Sun" consisting of works inspired by the nature phenomenon 'Sort sol' (Danish for 'Black sun'). 'Sort sol' is a nature phenomenon in the marshlands in southwestern Jutland, Denmark. Very large numbers of migrational starlings gather there in spring and autumn when they move between their winter grounds in southern Europe and their summer breeding grounds in Scandinavia and other countries near the Baltic Sea. 'Sort sol' takes place in the hours just after sunset. The birds gather in large flocks and form huge formations in the sky just before they decide for a location to roost for the night.
DETAILSThe serigraph* is made from one of Kristina's original drawings with thousands of dots made by hand. The artwork is printed with gold metallic ink on thick white textured art paper from Hahnemühle (known to deliver some of the worlds best fine art paper qualities). The heavy mould-made paper features a distinct textured surface in both look and feel.
* Serigraph printing is one of the oldest methods of printmaking, with examples dating back to the Song Dynasty in China. The process involves creating a stencil of the artwork on a screen of porous mesh, traditionally made of silk. A roller is used to pull the ink over the stencil, forcing it through the silk onto the paper being printed. The ink sits right on the surface of paper, resulting in incredibly rich and vibrant color.
LIMITED EDITIONThis serigraphy is made in a limited edition of only 400, signed and numbered by Kristina Krogh. All her works are made in limited editions, so once an artwork is sold out, it is gone for good.
