This abstract design was created by an easy way of abstraction. I had created a large striking canvas with a painted mountain scene on it, that really had a lot of focus on mountain rock surface. I really liked that the rock shapes were a focal point of the mountain in the painting so i photocopied the painting multiple times and cut out only the sections of interesting rock and spread them out and out them together over an A1 area. And I created an image which was entirely just the rock shapes and surface. I then used Kodatrace (a thicker tracing paper used in the printing process to convert a design to a screen by drawing with special black pens) to draw the rock shapes and I was left with this abstracted rock layer, which i was able to take into the print room and be really experimental with in the print room at university. I was able to print on a variety of different fabrics and have access to the dye lab where i create different print paste colours to print this layer. I was then able to open some of the prints up in photoshop and create more interesting colourways, like this purple one.

Texture and surface quality is also a huge part of my work, mark making, thick & thin, dark & light play a huge part in the image i am trying to portray. I have still wanted to capture the surface quality and affects and have them reprinted onto mugs and trays (etc) , because it just creates something exciting, edgy and quirky and a bit out-there! But that's what I love about my style, it is very different, its bold and hard and most of all REAL.
