Graphic Art Autumn 2018



Return to Graphic Art Main Page.

Now in September, I am trying to push some boundaries of this ink decalcomania. It seems to work best at small sizes, but I would love to develop some techniques to make it bigger. A few recent sessions did not really help me much, in my quest. I changed a few methods around, to experiment with my tools and procedure. I got some decent smaller size experiments, but the larger ones are less than what I was hoping. Here are some of the better results.

Quick survey of experiments in early October, inspired by the spores of a fungus called Pisolithus tinctorius, which I have been observing for years but had not yet tried using it to make ink. These are a few of the better results from those experiments. I feel like I am reaching a place where the work looks like it was a natural occurrence rather than an act of creation, and I am very happy about that development.

Week of October 15 (2018) I tried to push some limits with both ink and marbling. I really don’t feel that I had any breakthroughs, though. I like a few of these, (maybe I will comment later on). I am only showing some that I liked better – and not showing some that I will destroy or maybe try to rework.

Early November, back into the bath of fungus inks and mineral pigments. Some of these are rather interesting, in that they feel like they came from natural phenomena rather than through human activity. A few of these might get another little bit of work, if I decide they aren’t finished after staring at them for a while.
