Ex 3.4 Part 2
Monochromatic study – Black and White
I read the information provided concerning this exercise and saw that patterned papers still fitted within the parameters of the task. I used a gelli plate and acrylic slow drying paint to form patterns and used mostly thin deli paper to print on. I also gathered some textured paper I had found in Indonesia and thin rice paper. I used my previous collage 2 to inspire this collage. I liked the interest that was created with the textured paper and the patterning. The photograph shows the black patterning as very dark which was disappointing I think the actual work has more definition especially in the right hand corner.
Single Colour Study
For this collage I painted with acrylic paint pieces of light paper. I wanted to create dark , medium and light colours. I added white to the blue acrylic and then black to the blue acrylic. I tried to retain the same tonal values as the original collage.
For this third version of my chosen collage I decided to explore more pattern making on my gelli plate using a variety of tools. These included plastic tile tools from the hardware store a hexagon shaped print block. I collaged the background using light papers and ghost printing from the gelli plate with the aim of forming a more interesting background to continue layering the collage. I once again used some deli papers and like the translucent effect. I liked this one because it was more interesting and to me subtle.
