Goodness, how time flies. Barry came and went and I got back into my University work, plus a couple of commissions and now struggling with my final essay. I just couldn’t catch up with my blog until I settled on the subject matter and that kept changing every week! I think I have clinched it now and am writing on the abstraction/semi abstraction of landscape/nature. There! I have said it out loud and now I am committed! It’s a big subject, so I am honing it down to a couple of artists.
Do let me know your thoughts if you have any. I have always been very fascinated by the transition from representation to abtraction and how we change what we see and why. I am enjoying looking into this in more detail.
Here are some two plate sugar lift aquatints that I have been working on. They are tiny, barely 2 x 2″ or 5 x 5 cm. I just love the ‘abtraction’ of these images and played with colour. Plus I was practicing my registration skills. There is something very satisfying about getting two plates to line up perfectly… almost perfectly!
