This is a four-colour screen print I made in response to a large pressed plant collection from early seventies Greece. I used one of the folders from the collection. This folder containes six files, each consisting of a sheet, a label and samples of plants. I exposed all those items on the exposure unit like photograms. The resulting stencils were screen printed in four colours, corresponding to the original smaples. The advantage to that technique, as opposed to, say, scanning and digital reproduction, is the high degree of detail achieved on the representation of the plants. Fine roots and hairs print clearly.
