Printmaking: Planagraphic Systems and substrates
Assessment 2 – Germination and Imagination
This work responds to an Assessment Task brief which encouraged other approaches to lithographic and layered image production incorporating Silkscreen printmedia. To germinate is to cause something to originate, like the simplicity of seeds developing or the complexity of bringing something into life, an idea coming into being or thought. Germination has a sense of new beginnings. The start of something new…, a new
approach…, a new thought…, a new application…, thinking laterally…, creatively, using your imagination.
Here is the work installed at UNI for assessment today. There were two embroidery looms suspended from the ceiling in front of the two wall mounted works. The looms had the same delicate hand-made tissue stretched across their oval shape and were positioned in their horizontal orientation subversive to the recurring vertical orientation of the oval shape. I did not get an image of this installed so you will have to use your imagination…they were hanging some 50cm in front of the works
