A Roy Ahlgren serigraph (also known as silk screen or screen printing), “Galaxy II” is a vibrantly yellow colored example from the artist’s exploration in his “Galaxy” series.
Ahlgren was born in 1927 in Erie, PA, and was self-taught. In 1964 he began to work in the op and hard edge technique. Roy Ahlgren entered the art world somewhat in reverse. While most artists start by recording realistic subjects and moving to abstract work later in their careers, Ahlgren began creating abstract geometric designs and continued to do so for decades. His media was both serigraphy and traditionally brushed pigment onto canvas. His compositions were unique with many being mathematically constructed with considerable precision.
Signed in pencil by the artist and marked as an artist’s proof (AP).
