I have finally found the words for what I'm doing this month: improvisational printmaking.
In case you don't know, this month's #PrintInktober2023 manifesto is to see how many different ways I can use the Bauhaus Set I designed for Art Foamies.
Normally, printmaking involves a lot of planning and set up. But these prints I'm making are built layer-by-layer without envisioning a final outcome. Instead, I'm very much in the moment, making decisions as the print develops. Usually I come to the table with a single idea such as: use triangles. And then I respond to the piece as it develops. It's very similar to the way I make most art. Improvisationally. So it's a comfortable process for me. If you want to see the process, be sure to check out the short process videos I've been posting on instagram and facebook. (Members also have access to a real time version of the video for day 21.)
Here are days 16-22:
All of these pieces are for sale. Until mid-November, they're each only $65 (free shipping in the USA, $10 everywhere else). After that, they'll go into my shop and up in price. So if you want one, send me an email letting me know which one and I'll get it matted and in the mail to you.
Thanks for stopping by!
