Decalco Pine Foliage: People & Places
When I was able to start making marks and images again, I was delighted to realize that this time I was welcoming anything that arose in my mind as I looked at and worked with the random source images… my internal censor is definitely taking a break. For technical explanations of how I make these images, see the previous post.
The words “Decalco Pine Foliage” in the title refer to the random image (a photo of pine boughs) used as inspiration for this piece.
The following detail showcases a caricature of William Burroughs that arrived by surprise in the painting:
The completed painting is presented below:
A few more works from this series will be posted soon. Then I plan to dive into creating more digital decalco. It is SO much fun to use these tools and processes.
I have a already prepared some sound and sound generator posts that are just about ready to offer. They will be filling this space while I am busy working with digital decalcomania.
Wow, this really looks like a joyful purge, a draw-as-fast-as-you-can Peter Bruegel/Heronymous Boschesque free-for-all. I love the hint of your old signature but with new invention at every turn. It makes me think of lying in bed finding faces and objects in the drywall texture. Such an intriguing take-off point for new work.
Thanks for your comments! You reminded me of the countless hours I spent as a child lying on my bed looking at the drywall textures on the ceilings and walls! It is exactly the same kind of fun… a visual treasure hunt.
This is very good and continues the twisted seriously far out methods of your past. I look forward to more of these images appearing in the electronic wonderland…….HANK
