a remark about the printing technique, self invented, still without name.
Te black layer, which is printed by a usual laser printer on a transparent film. We experimented a lot with laser prints on transparent film during the “cours de graphisme” at the Ecole de Beaux Art in Besancon. This black layer gives to the composition structure and deepness. I work on beige cardboards – so the tone of the cardboard is the first colour. I print then with a simple cardboard form my 2nd and 3rd colour. The usage of cardboard print forces me to make extremely strong decisions about colours and composition. This kind of print doesn’t allow any details. As the last part I highlight with white colour some parts, usually by painting directly on the transparent film.
The nice thing is that this layered technique allows to experiment with collage elements and photos as well.
