Corinne Wasmuht
Corinne Wasmuht’s work creates a unique kind of illusory space, both abstract and fixed in recognisable form, yet somehow almost tangible. Repeated shapes and colours generate a sense of infinitely multiplying mirrored images, reflecting the vastness of contemporary networked culture and its never-ending, insatiable yearning for images and information. Based on an original painting, now part of the Saatchi Gallery collection, this single screenprint, in an edition of 55, is like a cinematic projection, larger than life in dimensions and overwhelming the viewer with the collected data, gathered largely from the internet. Corinne lives and works in Berlin, Germany

Screenprint
Also known as silkscreen. In its simplest form, this is a technique by which the artist blocks out a section of a fine, woven screen (formerly made of silk), which is stretched over a frame. With a squeegee, ink is pressed evenly through the screen on to a sheet of paper beneath. Only the areas of the screen not blocked out will be printed. The artist will use as many of these transparent sheets (separations) as the numbers of colours required in the print, and each sheet must be aligned very carefully with the others. The films are transferred on to the silkscreens via a light-sensitive process: only the areas which are painted by the artist will be blocked out and will not allow ink through.
