Screenprinting: A Painterly Approach

Tyanna Buie received her MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2010. Tyanna has been an artist-in-residence at Women’s Studio Workshop and the Vermont Studio Center. She exhibits her work extensively, including The Dittmar Gallery at Northwestern University, The Boston Printmaker’s 2011 North American Print Biennial exhibition, and The Print and Drawing exhibition at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. Buie’s work has also been featured on the cover of Averil Y. Clarke’s book, Inequalities of Love: College-Educated Black Women and the Barriers to Romance and Family. Tyanna received a Mary L. Nohl Artist’s grant in 2012. A central theme in Buie’s work is her experience growing up in Chicago, where her siblings were placed in foster care and moved from one home to another. Using screenprint, she reclaims her past.www.tyannajbuie.com

Tyanna has developed her own ways of screenprinting. She is in complete control of the media and she whips it into whatever shape she needs to get her point across. Her work is extremely painterly–a real blending of the two media — print and paint. During her time at WSW, I observed her working with the interns and knew right then she’d be a great SAI teacher. Plus no one does silkscreen like Tyanna.

This course will focus on presenting important visual and conceptual problems relevant to the screen-printing process. The course will begin with an introduction to various traditional methods of creating images on the screen, including photographic imaging, hand-rendered block-out methods and digitally created screens. Then we will focus on non-traditional techniques such as monotypes, monoprinting, chine colle, collage and mixed media. All experience levels are welcome.
