Serigraphs are silkscreened prints hand executed by Marvin and his family. They are signed and numbered in a limited edition. Most integrate embossing which is done after the screen printing and is accomplished with a metal plate (die) that is acid-etched in copper or hand-cut in brass, heated and then pressed into the paper with tonnage. Each print comes with a four-sided deckle edge and may be purchased unframed or framed. All framing is done in house with acid free mats and plexiglass. Full UV plexiglass protection is available upon request.
Marvin has been silk-screening his prints since the 1970’s.
“It started as a way to honor each graduating Native American artist at the University of Washington and has continued ever since. My serigraphs are a personal form of expression and I utilize a full pallet of colors to accentuate various sections of a print. In the mid 80’s I brought sculpture into printmaking by integrating embossing creating a 3D relief on the paper.”
