Outstanding! So pleased to be able to purchase Nick's Ink and Bleach art. This was s gift for a good friend and I was proud to be able to give it. Will be back to purchase one for my home. Highly recommend.
Fountain pen ink is not just utilitarian anymore, with the explosion of colours, it has become a rich media to express one self. It is just the logical progression of what ink is evolving to.
Fountain pen inks are going to be the next big art movement. Utilising the chromatic nature of fountain pen inks and trusting to serendipity, fascinating art possibilities appear before your eyes.
Made up of dyes, when the inks are applied to blotting paper the dyes are released and the colours spread outwards – imagine a drop of petrol on wet tarmac. I have found a way of achieving and utilising this effect on watercolour paper. The chromatic process is very much serendipity led and the beauty of the final outcomes are invariably dictated by this. Because they are natural and non contrived, the viewer is naturally drawn to them, like watching clouds or a sunset. I’m also a firm believer in the concept of ‘less is more’ and through these processes you can get so much from so little. I also love the idea of alchemy or in this case, creating a gold effect through subjecting fountain pen inks to bleach.
So, in the spirit of the current recycling era, I’m on a mission to re-invent, up-cycle and promote the use of fountain pen inks as something a little different. If you like what I’m saying… please invest in my work and SHARE THE LOVE!
