Exhibits of why i still exist. 2011. Photo Intaglio.
Exhibit A: His Ghost
Exhibit B: Warm Embraces
Its taken me a while to finally get this image set straight, i realized one day that these images ment to be paired together and not separate, i’ve also decided that i’m making this semester my ‘Payne’s grey” semester.
So my MAT (Masters in Art Teaching ) thesis is going to be Printmaking and how it can further enrich the art curriculum. I SO JUST ORDERED 47$ of BOOKS on JUST PRINTMAKING, its going to be christmas all month.
I got the tamarind book (the old vers.) and the complete printmaker book too the one from 1978 AND the 1995 edition (on top of 5 other books) . I LOVE seeing the differences over time. I’m just hoping Amazon ships these books out in the next week or two. I NEED TO GET READING ASAP.
i told you i’d use this gif again.
Anyways, I’ve entered work into the DC art bank and crossing my fingers they’ll want some of my work.
I’ve been on a stall, not enough time in the day to work on my own stuff. I’ll soon just pull late nights and disregard sleep again, so eventually you’ll see more finished prints and maybe the selfportrait printed soon. (Seeing as that needs to be submitted by the end of the month. oops)
Litho reduction. This dang Stone is 34x24; I like the brilliant lithographer that I am, managed to close the stone with SILVER ink, a no no. So of course seeing as it’s a black slate reduction… IT WASN’T CO OPERATING… luckily after a few hrs of performing lithographic ER maneuvers I fixed it and managed to reduce. SCORE!
Photo polymer plates : Solar and KM plates. I’m enjoying printing these two images, one is of my grand parents on the beach in the 40’s or so , the other I think of it as this person as a ghost, their memory is every where but they’re not around but I care deeply. Anyways, I’m learning and experimenting and so soon I’ll have these in a larger size… Maybe.
i’m working on this wall paper pattern (cause i’m such a dork and i’m into wallpapers) and so far its a 1.89gb photoshop file. THE COMPUTER CANT HANDLE ITS POWER. ITS A TRAP.. no not really, but it takes 5 mintues to save. Seriously. But, so far this is looking good. Its all lines and i intend to color this sucker print it out too but one step at a time. The file is about 50x50in. I wish i had a 60inch printer right about now. I have a victorian pattern going. it looks actually really awesome and i’m excited to getting some where near done with it…
