Serigraph: A serigraph is a silk screen print. Each
color is printed using a separate screen. In the case of these
pieces, four screens were used. One for the background, one
for the block that holds the text, one for the image; and
finally for the one that holds the text. In a separate operation,
ink is passed over and through each screen onto the paper.
The paper is allowed to dry before the next screen is used
for printing. All pieces were printed in editions of fifty,
with exception of "Cause and Effect," printed
in an edition of sixty-five.
