Ancient Mechanisms – Almost Done

Here is a longer scroll that’s almost finished. It still needs some experimentation with the void spaces. This semester I’ve been working toward creating a void, rather than leaving negative space within the paper. This requires very faint printing techniques, like thin, white, transparent inks, or underpainting that is then painted over, a la Diebenkorn. 

Some of the very faint neutral tones are washing out in the photos–another reason it’s good to see work in person. 😉

Here are some earlier shots of the same scroll, as it progressed through different stages:
