Vincent Uilenbroek (1980) developed a new series in which the actions of the screen printing technique are a prominent factor. He carried the series of screen prints from Unfold in his trouser pocket for some time, with a folded grid as fixed value. The ingrained folding lines define the course of time and space, the blueprint of this series in which time has visibly passed.
The Unfold Repress series is created by applying a new printing layer over the work carried along. Due to the height differences in the folded paper, the ink only partially prints and the fold lines are visually accentuated.
In the third part: Unfold Inverse, a negative of the print is created by printing the remaining ink in the screen onto white paper. In the same way, Uilenbroek also made a number of new works on panel that refer to the grid and to his earlier Ghost Images. By pressing residues of ink left in the screen, ghost images of original prints are created. Frames are accentuated and areas of color are placed against each other or pressed over each other. Like the Ghost Images, these works consist of layers that fade, like reflected echoes framed in a grid.
Vincent Uilenbroek lives and works in Haarlem. He is a screen printer pur sang. In addition to screen printing in his own Studio Onvervalst, he technically translates the work process and the residue into unique works on paper, panel and canvas.
