I, too, Knew Love
Group Exhibition // Screen print
Screen printed poster for ‘I, Too, Knew love’, an exhibition at Mishkenot Sha'ananim Culture and Hospitality Centre in Jerusalem. The exhibition collected illustrated interpretations for erotic Hebrew poetry, each poem by a different artist.
‘The Body is the Cause of Love’ by Yehuda Amihai, is the poem I referred to with my Illustration. The work quotes Ingres painting The Valpinçon Bather to portray the subtle gaze of the poet to the powerful burst of intimacy.
The screen print was made with three main colours - yellow, teal green and purple, each with a different translucency and gradation to achieve the final result. 
The layers were drawn with a nib pen and brush with ink on a mark resist film.
