I’m just now posting some images from last Friday’s class. It was an exciting one because the artists were able to work with their own images. I sent their digital images to slides.com, an online company that turns jpegs and other digital files to slides. (Slides.com did an awesome job and the turnaround time was impressive. I highly recommend them if anyone is looking for this service!) Using the slide of their images, the artists went to work making transfers. Here is what they came up with:
Beau took this image at Land of Medicine Buddha…
…and reproduced it five times in a row here!
I love this image that Ethan captured…
…and I also love the way that he stacked them up here. (Pay no attention to my fingers in this shot, and don’t worry…I am a complete professional;)
Gabby’s red flowers really “pop”.
She intentionally made the emulsion pull off in the last image in this series, which I thought was really cool.
And Isabel’s daffodil, I love the composition of this one, it is so graphic and fun.
Gillian used one of my slides, but will be doing her own soon, I really like the fact that two are upside-down, another happy accident. We’ll be working further with these multiple images this coming Friday. I cannot give the project away in its entirety, but…..think Andy Warhol!
We had some time left over, so we did a little experimanting. Isabel found that transfers look awesome on paper towels!
We also experimented with manipulating the images by dragging and/or twisting them as we transfered them onto the paper.
I love this one, it came out looking like a watercolor painting.
Impressive, huh? Check back next week for the results of our “image series” projects!
