1 of 2 thematically related prints (see last detail image for the pair together: RoadToMarrakesh(ArabSpring) and ArabSpringDeconstructed)
If you are interested in the pair convo me.
This is the most recent large print in which byproduct from other print work takes center stage and performs its own intricate story.
It is the latest in a series of bolder, more radiant color combinations and a study in contrast in bold and faded, back and front, large and small, intricate and brazen, loose and structured.
The print began with a plate holding both the original and ghost print image of the central figure. The shapes mainly developed around those figures, the first was a layer of shapes that reminded me of the intricate wood or stone lattice work so inherent to Middle Eastern architecture. The figures appeared to be moving through some kind of wreckage of that architecture and brought to mind "Road to Marrakesh". The print took off from there, building on this theme, with added fragments of hand-cut paper stencils super-imposed from another series. It evolved into a multi-dimensional dense layering of intense colors and bold shapes. Pondering the Road to Marrakesh, the Road to Freedom and it's inherent violence, the image demanded one more layer disturbing the colorful happy background.
The end result reflects my recent fascination with aqua blue, orange, yellow, red and fuchsia - alone and in combination with some hints of lime green. The superimposed red liquid ink spatters bring the final layer of a complex narrative and shifts the whole into focus.
Color rendition and intensity may vary on different monitors.
