Breaking Wave is a screen print which is a form of handmade printmaking. Screen printing uses a screen made from fabric stretched tightly over a frame. Blocking out areas with a stencil. After that a squeegee to force ink through the open fabric. Originally this method used silk as the fabric/mesh, therefore it is also know as silkscreen printing.
This limited edition screen print was inspired by stories of shipwrecks and coastguard rescues and captures the force and energy of the sea. This two colour print screen print depicts a traditional rowing boat and its crew on the face of a vast breaking wave.
Gareth Ellis lives and works in Cornwall with his prints depicting his favourite subjects; Cornwall and the sea. Gareth enjoys the challenge of simplifying Cornish landscapes and coastal scenes into basic forms and depicting light and shade with minimal print layers. In addition to this Gareth primarily works from pencil sketches which he uses in his screen prints and digital prints.
