Serigraph (Silk Screen) was introduced to Mr. Bittner while a graduate student working on his Master of Arts Degree in painting at Michigan State University. Mr. Bittner went on to complete his Master of Arts and Master of Fine Arts degree in one and a half years, normally a three year program. Mr. Bittner was offered a position teaching Serigraphy, Lithography and Life Drawing at Michigan State University. After returning to the East coast he taught color theory and visual organization at The University of Bridgeport for 25 years.
Each serigraphy is composed of a myriad number of colors produced individually on a separate screen with a hand cut lacquer film. Mr. Bittner has travelled extensively around the world and has documented his travels in diverse works of art.
J. Neil’s International limited edition works include Thira on Santorini, a serigraph of the Greek island volcano with the city of Thira perched high on its slopes. Shutters and Lace, a narrow street in Mykonos rendered in aquas and blues, and Callejón de las Flores of Cordoba, capturing the essence of spring in Spain with flower-draped courtyards and alleyways. The awe-inspiring mist shrouding Toltec Pyramids of the Yucatan, Block Island and scenes of New England are subjects of his other limited edition serigraphs.
