Laura Charlton is a Brooklyn-based artist who works with silkscreen prints and monoprints
The abstraction in her print works is obtained by manipulating immaterial sources, such as YouTube videos, screenprinting the collected stills in layers of halftone images and then cutting them into geometric shapes. A moiré effect is usually obtained by superimposing halftone patterns. The monoprint technique is employed for images of unfolded and repeated layers of cardboards boxes.
I use silkscreen as a tool to investigate the creation of physical artworks from disintegrating digital images. (…) The structures that I build up from these fragments grow organically, preceding their own design. Forms negating themselves, light/dark negating space, exotopic/endotopic- Klee’s concept of the multidimensional plane. L.C. 2014
