An amorous ape – inspired by Angkor ( 1937 – something wierd video collection ).
This is a two colour screen print made from 2 of 4 colour separates, printed on rough cartridge paper. I am looking for qualities analogous to the qualities in B-movies. I like the lines created by an uneven pull and the areas where the ink is too thick and has created a pattern. Also the alllignment is slightly off.
The allignment does create a sense of depth – or even the badly made early 3D movies.
This one colour print is on even rougher sugar paper. It picks up more ink than the cartridge tends to bleed heavily. I like the mistakes caused by bits of water on the screen.
As with the digital experiments I love the qualities that are enhanced when they are enlarged.
Having chosen an image to screen print, I made 4 colour CYMK separations printed onto acetate. The three images above are made from scanning the separations into photoshop and recreating the screen print process digitally. The resolution of the acetates is 65 LPI ( lines per inch ) which is very low . This was to look at how low res might emulate the feel of cheap movies.
Magenta separation. scanned and coloured using colour balance in Photoshop.
I love the half tone low res quality when these images are enlarged.
Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black.
Moving the yellow separate out of alignment.
Moving all the colours creates a real sense of movement and depth.
