WHAT IS A SERIGRAPH?
Serigraphy is a term describing the silkscreen process when used for fine art rather than commercial purposes.
Unlike many of the serigraphs on the market today, these original prints are produced and hand-printed by the artists themselves, in their studio on d'Arches Silkscreen 88, a 100% rag, neutral pH paper.
Serigraphs are produced in an edition, limited in number as indicated in pencil below the image.
The notation 1/100 means that this particular print is the first of 100 in the edition. By signing and numbering it, the artist is guaranteeing that there will never be more than 100 original serigraph prints of this design. Edition sizes are noted with each image on these pages.
There are different methods of producing a stencil for printing the serigraph.
With the film method, a very thin lacquer-soluble film on a transparent backing is laid over the pattern and cut with a knife to trim away the areas you wish to print.
After cutting the stencil, one for each color or blend of colors, the film is adhered to the silk screen with a fluid and the backing is removed.
With another method, a negative block-out stencil is registered for placement with the previous colors so that the imprint will fall into the right place.
This becomes more difficult as the number of colors in a print increases.
When the ink is prepared to its desired color, proper consistency and transparency, the squeegee is hand-pulled by the artist across the screen, pushing the ink through the silk onto the paper below.
WHAT IS EMBELLISHING
The word "embellish" as defined by Webster is "to make beautiful by ornamentation, to adorn or to add fanciful details to."
When we’re talking about art on canvas, embellishing refers to painting over areas of the image to enhance color and/or to add brush strokes to the finished work.
Embellishing techniques are as unique as the artists themselves – some use oil paints while others use clear gesso, some have a great deal of texture while others apply a thin layer of paint.
In either case, the canvas has more texture and dimension when it is embellished and looks more like an original.
And both serigraphs and giclees can be embellished.

BIOGRAPHY OF ARTIST
Dorit Levi. Born in 1952 -
The artist Dorit Levi has a special and unique style all her own. The flow of color and images the joy of life, and the movement of figures create a wondrous image for the viewer.
Although each work has the clear mark of Dorit, in ther works one can see the influence of Bolivian artist Boulanger as well as cubists Leger, and Braque.
Dorit Levi was born in 1952 in Tel Aviv, Israel, and the culture and tradition of her home can be seen in her work. Dorit Levi's extraordinary talent brought her to study at the prestigious Wizco France art Scool also located in Tel Aviv.
There she was the dedicated student of one of Israel's greatest artist, Edwin Salomon.
Dorit Levi's works are remarkable in her use of gold leaf and the enormous attention to detail and complex compostion.
Each time one looks at a Dorit Levi painting new aspects and new configurations are discovered.
The works of Dorit Levi are on display in various galleries and collections throughout the world, attesting to her exceptional talent.
Dorit Levi's works can be found in Israel, the United States, Canada, France, and Japan.
