On my way to Morley today for the start of the new term, and i was caught in a downpour. I needed a cup of coffee to warm up. Ordered my coffee, waited for it, and a very large young man hovered behind me. Eventually he spoke, in an American accent, " Excuse me, could I have an ice-cube for this coffee? I'm not British and I really can't drink coffee at this temperature". Perhaps he was in a hurry, but it did make me laugh. Anyway, those words made their way in to some of today's work with heat press ( transfer) printing.
An exploration of the tree motif from last term, on a much smaller scale, with an overlay of a piece of the large scale, printed on polyester fleece.
Large tree motifs, positives and negatives - I really struggle to get my brain round this I think due to the inversion of the image at the same time.
Could I have an ice-cube……printed to try to hep me understand the inversion and positive / negative aspects of transfer printing when using a photocopy. Printed on polyester satin.
Printing one piece of painted paper to exhaustion, on fleece, 8 consecutive samples.
Summary of the day - it is wonderful to be back.
