Recycling the Past

As is often the case elements of the past come back in a new way, here is a CD, and the new use for it, as an intaglio plate. Just a quick sketch out of my imagination.

Full body, good poses in self portraits are rather difficult, but a bit of contortion and mirrors help.

Mei Li - Hand colored drypoint, 12x10 cm

This was done using an aluminum plate instead of the PETG I have been using. Its a lot different to work with I think I like having the design visible through the plate as you get with plastic, but with metal , mistakes are easier to fix, and the plate is more durable. I also like adding color by hand, it adds a layer of complexity to the image and its meaning.

Here is a small figure in papier-mâché and epoxy resin. The écorché look is a departure from other figures, while still abstracting the figure it gives a certain implication of reality.

on-the-stand
Here is a rather clumsy animation of a drypoint that I did based on what I was seeing while modeling. The heads of the artist’s bobbing up and down as they look at their drawing then me made a very interesting twinkling effect
Here is the print in its ‘pure’ form
