Squeezed: Digital and Analog Screen Printing | June 16th – 20th, 2014
One week intensive course in fine art screen printing techniques and image development, including resist, paper, photo-emulsion and alternative stencil methods. Multiple aspects of screen printing will be presented. Participants will make editions and unique prints.
Kimiko Miyoshi’s printmaking experience began as a collaborative silkscreen printer in Japan. After receiving her MFA in Printmaking from University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, she built scientific exhibitions for Explora Science Center, a children’s science museum, in Albuquerque. The work had a great effect on her creative practice and observational habit. The focus of Miyoshi’s work is to provoke curiosities and transform insignificant objects or mundane phenomena into seductive works of art. Her recent solo exhibitions include Works on Paper at Stonerose Gallery (Long Beach, CA), Serial Possibilities at Brandstater Gallery at La Sierra University (Riverside, CA), Pull Together at Stevenson Gallery at SOU (Ashland, OR), and Illegiblusion at Sabina Lee (Los Angeles, CA). Miyoshi is the program head of the printmaking area at CSU, Long Beach.
