1: Royal Hospital, acrylic ink, ink pen, image transfer on paper, 40 x 30 cm
2: Grainger’s Lane, acrylic ink, ink pen, image transfer on paper, 40 x 30 cm
Each artwork has layers of image transferred vintage diagrams, maps and text relating to each building/area.
Both buildings have been empty for quite a few years. The Royal Hospital is currently being taken down, there are plans to use the land for new housing. The building on Grainger’s Lane was once a pub but now sits condemned on the street corner.
These pieces are in The Art Yard’s current exhibition, mentioned in my previous post.
Spent a couple of hours in Photoshop extracting and putting together some diagram, texture and collage pieces ready to transfer to paper. Many of these diagrams are taken from the British Library’s public domain albums on Flickr.
These will make up the base textures to a coupe of artworks that will be submitted to exhibitions over the next couple of weeks.
I’m planning to print, cut and paste some parts and image transfer some parts using both gel medium and acetate printing techniques. Once on the paper the textures will be drawn, painted and inked over.
