The view of the 5th Serigraphic workshop in Jihlava untraditionally and a bit different Serigraphic workshops, that are regularly organized by Screen Print Association CR co-operating with SZSR and supported by FESTA, can be classified as actions, which have their stable place in the calendar of our common activities. Also four representatives from Slovakia participated in this year’s, in ranking the 5th, meeting of students and fans of serigraphy,
that took place from 29th September to 2nd October 2011 at the area of Art Grammar School in Jihlava. The school and Ján Šmok‘s Gallery have a seat in a sensitively reconstructed old historical building. This area itself supports creative atmosphere and inspires to experiments.
In four days participants of the meeting tried different art techniques, however the dominant technology was „á la prima“– template prepared directly on the sieve. Organizers of the workshops didn’t purposely determine unifying theme, so that there was opened wide space for creativity and searching. Varied spectrum of works was created – from the works reflecting concrete emotional experience of the author, over experimentation with technology to abstractly expressed mood. The process of creation of work of art and ways of artist´s soul are inscrutable.
And sometimes crunching of pistachios is significant, too. Open friendly atmosphere at our common meetings is the valued principle, that is not replaceable and that each of us carries of as a source of energy for further work. Spontaneous evening common discussions and dialogues „about semi-finished work of art“, that continued far into the night, were very positive and encouraging. The authors tried there to explain background of creation of work of art, which in some cases raised unflagging burst of laughter, but it also helped to find a way and move the proverbial “step forward”.
Closing day of the meeting passed in work spirit and hectic atmosphere. There were still lots of things necessary to finish. However everything was lastly managed- even traditional T-shirts for common photo. And we’re already looking forward to meeting in some other serigraphic workshops... Ľudovít
