Exhibitor History

Ted Dinkel
East Burke, VT United States

I developed an interest in serigraphy while working in Washington, DC, and took classes at the Corcoran School of Art. Most of my work there was based on photos, and the process of producing the silk screens from these images was lengthy. Being a computer specialist by profession, I explored using computer graphics software to expedite this effort. I soon found that I could produce the desired print without actually cutting stencils, mixing inks, etc. Recent developments in software and printing have allowed me to experiment further. Working from new digital photos and scanned slides, I adjust brightness, contrast, and dynamic range, etc. to produce the best image. I then abstract the shapes, colors or impressions that appealed to me in the first place, simplifying, eliminating some of the “trees” for the “forest”. The final result is an amalgam of conscious decisions and a touch of serendipity – merging art and technology to produce the image I want.
