After my tutorial I started researching some print artists. I thought about our print and surface lectures, and specifically about Maija Louekari's Hetkai. The sketchy-line overlay used here would work well with the movement sketches I have done...more drawings perhaps to play with?
Kathy had suggested that I look at Hockney's tree paintings...they're enormous! I don't think I'll be working that big just yet!?
|Bigger Trees Near Water, 2007|
Suzanne Manns exhibition The Truth About Trees popped up in my search. I was interested by her abstraction and overlay style
|Dead of Winter|
Paula Zinsmeister had some interesting ways with collage and print
An article on Mbuti women and barkcloth brought up this interesting print
|Mbuti Bark Cloth|
These bold composition paintings by Cara Enteles are just brilliant! Not 'prints' as such but the perspective and use of line and colour is great. Just what I need to be thinking about too...
|Powerline Tree 4|
|Tree After Magenta|
I also discovered this brilliant blog on printmaking too - a very inspiring read!
