Archival digital print of original painting on board.
In this series the artist sought to emulate the B&W photocopy machine which prints black toner powder fused onto paper in different densities to create light and dark. Board was prepared with layers of white gesso before black acrylic paint was diluted at various levels to create lighter and darker tones. It would be quicker and easier to use white acrylic to create value differences, but the effect is very different and a true test of discipline and the slow and careful expenditure of time. In that way, differing greatly from the speedy mechanistic process she seeks to echo.
The original painting was exhibited as a part of Discipline at Galerie Dusseldorf in 2004. The print is on quality Hahnemuhle Smooth Photo Rag 308gr using Epsom Archival Inks. Edition of 200.
