Artwork

A continuation of experimentation work looking at the 1999 Britannia crash. These works use the same fuselage form as I was testing out various ink techniques.

The first image is a far cleaner, thinner outline of ink and the printed text is far darker. I prefer the second image as the whole work seems more vibrant.

The second work also emphasises the balance of the clean and the ‘messy’ of the disaster spectacle and I also like the use of the text on only one half of the artwork. I also used a mixture of report text and news headlines from the time of the crash, the headlines are shown in a different font to differentiate the two. Unlike work in the previous semester there is no painted scenery/landscape and the different elements of the image are only against the colour of the paper itself.
