Studio Views: Work in Progress

Studio photograph of work in progress 29/01/11

Yesterday, work started on developing an earlier sketch from the Child/Animal/Other series. The work entails recreating material found from a google image search for 'child and animal', by rendering the individual elements of visual data that make up the image, in this case from a digital print of a half tone pixel-based photograph.

CMYK Sketches (Detail)

Developmental sketches exploring a limited Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black palette. The paint is applied in layers onto the paintings' surfaces, where the colour mixing occurs – rather than mixing it on a palette prior to application. The process continues with my exploration of replicating mechanised image-making processes by hand, in this case suggesting a four colour printing process or screenprinting.
