I think, what surprised me most about monoprints was that, I ended up using more of the monoprints I initially considered “failed”. Perhaps because they are more abstract.. and surprising.
Psychotic. This one was my first experiment with rearranging the monoprints and I liked it so much I kept it. It’s basically the cut up monoprint of my palm, each small piece rotated 45 degrees from the previous, and mixed with the abstract whiter pieces… which have some interesting patterns… (There seem to be a skull in the final..)
This one was… rubbish. Or so I thought. Prof spotted something like a person in it. So I worked upon that and joint it with more shadows and figures. And turned out to really like it. Unfortunately (?) I considered it for both “Sensual” and “Indecisive” but in terms of fitting the emotions, I had better options.
One was originally for “Distracted”, while one ended up being “Lyrical”.. It might not be obvious here, but one of the strips (top) seem to have a trail of “white spots” like light running through it. I can’t say I was too happy with the lyrical, but a lot of surprising things seem to happen in the process of working on this assignment and it stuck.. ^^”
