CONCEPT OF WORK
The first series of such approaches led to the "RISK-IT" technique of pouring 2 colors of paint onto wet paper, tilting to create fantastic landscapes. The chemical properties of the different paints and the degree of wetness influence the images.
My next experiments led to the unique handed-printed works, catalogued as DECALCOMANIA, in the Victoria and Albert Collection, London. They are created by pressing plastic wrap onto poured drawing ink to create fantasy landscape.
The third experimental approach I devised is LOOPOMANIA, unique prints. Using painted string laid down between 2 pieces of paper, I pulled the ends to create abstractions and shapes suggestive of growing things. An example of this was also acquired by the Victorian and Albert Museum.
The fourth experimental stage is woodblock prints, currently being explored....}
