In this series of densely layered serigraphs, artist Harry Elno Krug (American, b. 1930) explores shapes, color, and form in energetic, abstract compositions that are inspired by the landscape.
Serigraphs, or silkscreen prints, are made by using a squeegee to press ink through a taut, fine fabric mesh onto paper. Areas that are not to receive ink are masked out on the fabric. Krug is a master as this process, often using as many as 20 screens to create the composition and the unusual surface texture of his work.
Krug taught in the art department at Pittsburg State University for 38 years and served as department head in the 1980s. His work has been exhibited in the United States and Europe and he has been featured in several textbooks on printmaking. He holds degrees from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and University of Wisconsin-Madison. He lives in Kansas.
