Screenprinting: Improvisation and Control


Screenprinting: Improvisation and Control
Sonnenzimmer (Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi)
2 week course || PRINT 638 001 || 3 credit hours || Lab Fee: $100

Over this two week course, students will be introduced to the screenprinting process through an improvisational approach to print production. Rather than reproducing preplanned images, students will be challenged to sculpt images with compositional and conceptual integrity by harnessing the additive and modular nature of the process. A variety of hand and photographic stencil making techniques will be demonstrated and encouraged.


FACULTY

Sonnenzimmer is the collective output of Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi. Their work explores the contemporary and historic impact of the graphic impulse through publishing, exhibitions, graphic design, and performance. While the duo works in an array of media, their focus is on triangulating a deeper understanding of the role of graphic expression at large. In addition to their self-driven work, Sonnenzimmer actively engages in commissioned projects aiming to reshape preconceived notions of the graphic arts. Their work has been shown in The United States, Brazil, China, and Europe; with recent solo exhibitions at Vebikus Kunsthalle Schaffhausen, Switzerland, and Hatch Show Print in Nashville, Tennessee.
