Serigraphy is the process used to create limited edition prints based on an original painting. The serigraph is based on an original painting, but sometimes not an exact duplication in size and / or appearance as the artist may sometimes make subtle changes from the original painting to the serigraph. These two seem to still be in the original frames. The artist has signed each in pencil in the lower right hand side and also labeled each with their title both placed under the print. They have a little matte burn around the edges. Please see pictures for condition.
Born in Elgin, Illinois, in 1931, Mosiman graduated with an arts degree in 1953 from nearby Wheaton College, a center of American Evangelical Protestantism. After taking graduate courses in printmaking at Northern Illinois University, Mosiman joined the staff of the missionary radio station, in Quito, Ecuador. He put his artistic skills to good use in a chalk art ministry at evangelistic tent meetings. Local audiences marveled at these impromptu works by a left-handed artist, wondering what masterpieces Mosiman might have created had he been right-handed!
After 12 years of missionary service, Mosiman returned to Illinois and took up performance art, staging “musical painting” demonstrations for schools and civic and religious groups. During a typical performance, Mosiman would set up a large canvas or paper pad on an illuminated stage and paint or draw pictures, inspired by musical compositions. He synchronized his brush strokes or chalk markings in time with the music in a melding of sound and movement, which viewers compared to ballet choreography. Mosiman created screen-made prints to sell as souvenirs of his musical events.
