Fun with Chemigrams

August 23, 2014  •  1 Comment

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.
