Fun with Chemigrams
This weekend I needed to get back into my creative zone. I edited a few images, made a few prints, but I still felt like I wanted to do more; I wanted to get more "hands-on" with my work. This can be summed up in two words: Alternative Processes. But the sun was already going down, and I don't have a UV light box.
.....So, I thought I would take another stab at chemigrams.
One amazing thing about photo paper is that it is so flexible in what it can do. I gathered a few leaves, mixed some chemistry, and started making art. I was very amazed with the results this time. I was able to get some great leaf impressions, as well as a few of the "artist's hand." But I was totally blown away with the results from the last 2 images. These could only be described as non-objective chemigram paintings. The best part was bringing out color, albeit a little soft, from black and white paper.
Take a look and let me know what you think!
I can see you teaching a class on this process. It's awesome work.
