Butterfly Wings

Janet Fish

It was Sondra Freckelton who advised Janet Fish to travel to Michigan to create fine art print editions with Stewart & Stewart and Butterfly Wings was her first fine art screenprint edition at Stewart & Stewart's Wing Lake Road studio. Butterfly Wings was screenprinted in 12 transparent colors on premium Rives BFK paper, 100% cotton and archival. This is an important edition as it set the stage for the artist's understanding of how to screenprint with transparent inks to attain a full spectrum of over 4000 achieved colors and values with a palette of as few as 12 transparent printing inks. Her total understanding of the medium is clearly evident in each of the ten screenprint editions Fish created in Michigan from 1991-1996, including a fine print commission for the Detroit Institute of Arts. Both Janet Fish and Stewart & Stewart's master printer, Norman Stewart, share the understanding of color theories Josef Albers and later his student, Sewell Sillman, championed at the Yale School of Art.
