Serigraphy. 1 of 50. Numbered and signed. Part of the series "If only life was simple"
Serigraphy, also known as screen printing, is a method of creating an image on paper, fabric or some other object by pressing ink through a screen with areas blocked off by a stencil. Serigraphy is a process for producing editions (multiple originals) of artwork. However each print in an edition is considered an original work of art, not a copy.
My Buemann searches and breach her limits at all times to combine different methods and to explore different media.
The scenery is defined, but the means and tools are without limits and with the basis of a simple line her illustrations create an expressive universe. This expressive simplicity is common in Buemanns illustrations, whose graphic work is tight and conceptually strong.
Buemann's illustrations are created from thin black lines and focuses mostly on communicating difficult emotions in a simple way. She strives to cut right to the bone – No unnecessary lines. In every drawing she is trying to say a lot with very little.
"I have always been interested in people and often address people's feelings – rational or irrational – in my work. I use myself as a starting point but a lot of people recognize themselves in my work. I think it’s crucial that we don’t neglect our feelings, but that we dare to acknowledge them, which is part of being alive. I hope that my drawings can be used as a tool which for a moment, makes us feel ourselves.”
