process graffiti

I made a process for work in early 2000 to create work from a group of photos. I would use structural elements from the photos and layer them over each other then lay a graffiti outline over the whole lot. I would work from dark to light making tonal shifts and patterns from the corresponding layers. This encoded the work far more than just using a drawing, I could achieve unexpected results. I haven’t done one of these works since 2008. I haven’t had the time to put in that kind of effort for a while. This is the type of piece I will do when I have a chance soon to paint. It is an interesting process and usually it produces unexpected results, it is like a puzzle working out how the shapes will interact, it is a pattern produced from a process. Making tone and graphic shapes interact. I like not knowing what my piece will end up looking like. I hope to paint again soon. If I get desperate I will just head over to Malabar and paint it there but I hope I can get a wall that will last for a month at least.
