Sex, Violence, Vegetables, Prints.

Tuesday, 16 November 2010

I feel a little guilty about these, as they're only just going up now but they're actually a few months old...

These two are my first 'proper' screenprints! They were a million times fun to do, mainly because they were such a challenge; cleaning the uni's massive A0 screens was an experience on it's own! If you've got any Spanish that's 'Sex and Violence' & the character is totally a luchadora- I like my wrestling & lucha libre is cooler than other wrestlings for the costumes alone. She's been confused for a clown, which I can totally see & don't mind because she'd be into sex & violence whether she was a wrestler or a clown, to be honest.

The blue one is actually blue & silver but it doesn't show on the scan, & you can puurr~chase an original of it at the Here & Now Gallery in Falmouth, at about A2, numbered & printed on some very beautiful Fabriano paper.

These two were my first monotypes, made with stencils, oil-based inks & some drawing utensils. These have been a bit of an inspiration for where my work has moved to since I started Level 3 at uni, concentrating pretty heavily on shape & colour over anything else. Buuut more on that another time!
