Description: This print was made by tracing Playboy images onto tracing paper, then made into stencils using cardboard and projecting light onto these cut outs to paper and then tracing the larger image onto it. Once the projected image was traced onto all of the paper used, I then cut out the negative space of the image and created patterns alongside the negative space. The final image is reminiscent of western film posters as the paper lays onto each other creating a foreground and background. Contrasting the imagery of the western tone I used bright saturated colors to shift the masculine tone of western imagery to a more high femme tone.

Description -

I am primarily interested in textiles, craft making and ‘decorative art’, so I responded strongly to class discussions surrounding art and printmaking conventions and expectations. I started to think about swatchbooks and the cell image, where patterns that become discontinued, or as they go in-and-out of fashion, are reserved annually by the mill in sample-form, and the ‘original’ design is stored rather than discarded. This living collection is intended to act as a visual library for newer artists that come in and essentially reference, revive and reproduce a derivative of that image, thus creating a constant recycling of symbols, mass produced and introduced into daily life. 

 

As a typical step in my process, I selected a found fabric with an existing pattern to respond to, and then wished to honor that material by replicating and printing its own image onto itself, repeatedly. I mirrored the plaid element, changing its orientation when tearing the fabric into strips, and used heavy spray-starch [usually meant for laundry] with a hot iron to adhere the pieces. With chine colle in mind, I “grew an original pattern out of the cell of the old [..], and as if the swatch were a gene: its offspring had their own individuality, but also showed their ancestry.”

I struggled with doing monoprints last semester so for this project I wanted to practicewith composition, aesthetics, and color combinations. To implement failure into thisproject, I decided to print all of the shapes slightly off centered. I know as printmakers,we know how irritating it is when we misplace our prints, so I wanted to use that idea tomake unique prints that create a variety of color combinations. I also added lineworks ofthe original placement of the shapes in order to show how misplaced the plate was inthe printing process.

I approached this assignment wanting to give it a collage aspect, but that didn’t really
work out in the end as I had a lot of noise in my prints from overly inking my plate. I
actually really like some of the noise I got in some of the prints. When it doesn't
overpower the image being created, I think the noise adds some nice movement and
compositional elements. Though in a few prints the noise definitely overpowered my
image. I think the strongest aspect of my project is where the image and
abstract/expressive backgrounds work together to make a stronger composition. The
weaker prints are some of the ones where I have blocked off the image with a box from
being able to interact and spread through the background.
One of the challenges I didn't expect was the registration of my images I was going to
trace. My brain just doesn't want to think backwards so that is always difficult for me
with printing. I learned that just going with and trusting the process is a good thing! I consider myself a painter before a print maker, so I usually stress about small mistakes and details.
