|"Offering" and re-envisioned monoprint under construction.|
The new piece is composed of two separate images to be mounted as a single print. Both are photopolymer intaglios; one using Solarplate the other ImagOn film. Similar but distinct processes.
I struggled a bit with an image to compliment the nest image...
... and finally settled on this.
I also wanted to add dimensional elements so I experimented with crocheting a nest. After a couple of experiments I decided to go with the one made with finer thread.
I plan on stitching a few grass stalks onto the nest portion but I'm currently at a standstill trying to decide how much layering to do.
I'm not sure if I should include the printed arched cutout of netting or omit it.
I'm so close to finally resolving this that I need to step away before making my final decisions. I think I need to head to the beach for a change of scenery and hopefully come back with fresh eyes.
Sooner or later I'll be able to pull it all together.
