Cavelight Studio Uses the Handmade Technique of Screen Printing to Create Distinct Artworks

Cavelight Studio's Screen Printing Series

Screen printing involves pushing ink through a fabric stencil onto a substrate (paper, fabric or any smooth surface) to create layers of colours that combine to form an image. This handmade process of image-making requires skill, precision and techniques which result in heavily pigmented prints that are bold, bright and textured.


“The artists’ interest in Screen Printing was piqued due to its intensely physical nature, the unique methods involved that require the breaking down of the graphic image, as well as the history of the medium. The innate restrictions of the medium provide for some very interesting constraints and challenges around constructing an image which helps create unexpected and original results.” - Cavelight Studio


This first set of 6 prints are original pieces by the artists that reflect how they contemplate their everyday lives, existential questions, and visions for the future.

1) Keep Swimming

A bird’s eye view of the pool of life. Inspired by the cyclical nature of existential pondering, and how we see ourselves isolated yet contained in a vast and endless universe, making meaning within our self-made comic book frames.

2) Immovable

An ode to the fundamental human condition. Of great longing and insurmountable chasms, and the beautiful light that this eternal reaching, seeking, shines upon our mundane and persistent efforts at navigating life.

3) SpaceSlip

A snapshot of the deep music of life, the underlying rhythm that consumes and drives us, flowing through everything. A small peek at the invisible workings of the universe, momentarily sliced open.

5) Eclipse

Paused in suspended reality, while the Sun looks away and lets the earth gaze upon it for a change.

A brooding earth, gazing into the future, both melancholic and hopeful.
