Moderna galerija, Ljubljana

Andrej Jemec, Progression Towards the Light, 1974, colour screenprint; recipient of the International Jury Prize, 11th Biennial of Graphic Arts, Ljubljana, 1975.

The exhibition included fifteen colour screenprints made between 1975 and 1977. Andrej Jemec is one of the more prominent representatives of the Ljubljana school of graphic arts, who devoted almost ten years to studying colour and colour transitions, which he achieved in his printmaking with the screenprinting technique. Colour becomes a thing, matter, the bearer of meaning. And it was precisely colour screenprints that brought him an award at the 11th Biennial of Graphic Arts.
