The Red Curtain is an evocative image of a decaying old town with flakey buildings. On the ground floor of the central house, an open doorway leads into a building with a billowing red curtain on the first floor. This narrative print speaks of unknown movements, arrivals and departures, of liaisons and sexual tension.

A colour silkscreen print is created by building up an image with several layers of individually printed colours. This process is called colour separation. Each colour has its own ‘positive’ which is made on acetate or tracing paper (see photos for reference) which is then exposed to a UV light with a screen coated in photo-sensitive emulsion
