The article discusses the significance of screen as a means of developing ideas and the various approaches of artists to screen. It examines the screen's potential for variations in image making, as investigated by professors Mary Anne Jordan, Susan Putnam and Clare Verstegen. The meaning of the choice of cloth by artists as a material on which to print is explored. It also highlights the works of Jordan, which include areas of repeated small units of design such as spirals, geometric planes and looser geometric elements, the artmaking process of Putnam and the techniques employed by Verstegen in her works.
