Sneakiest of peeks at the monoprints I’m going to be showing at our Year 2 Exhibition on Monday entitled “Growth” - subject of these prints is how my twin and I have grown from the same original cells (still can’t wrap my head round that) to where we are now. Originally I did these in pencil ‘cause I hadn’t done any straightforward pencil drawings for ages, but then I didn’t really like them and my tutor didn’t either, so that really settled the fact I’d redo them. Chose to monoprint so that the cloudy nature and haziness of the prints makes you look closer (or at least I hope it does) in order to see all the details - kinda echoing the fact that sometimes people need to double take in order to see if it’s really me or Chris.
So here’s the set of prints - 10 in total - not the final formation, but my floor’s not big enough. Also, I need to window mount these properly, and will be doing that tomorrow when I find a bevel cutter. Also want to sand down the frames a bit and repaint them as not overly happy with how they’re looking at the moment. Also, the one without paper in it has split, which is a pain in the backside. So will be hoping I can pick up another tomorrow. I hate it when things go wrong last minute - always have to make things harder for myself.
Sorry for the bad photo… actually no I’m not - if you want a clearer look at these, you can come to see them at our exhibition! There’s some fantastic stuff going on display - I got a quick look at some of the stuff my peers will be putting up, and everything is looking great - really cool to be putting stuff up alongside such talented people :)
Our Private View at Stew Gallery in Norwich is on Monday - do come along - there’ll be food… and wine (which might actually help make these prints look half decent!!!)
