Way back in the early 1990’s, when The Artist was studying Illustration in Cornwall, he used to frequent a particular art shop in Truro ~ which he describes as being ‘sort of mystical’. It contained materials which were hard to find anywhere else ~ stuff that you didn’t even know existed. But, the minute you set eyes on it, you knew you just had to have it.
It was here that he discovered Scraperboard ~ board coated in China clay then painted with Indian Ink. Fine images can be created by scratching or scraping off the black ink to reveal the white clay underneath.
As part of a college exercise in ‘rendering different surfaces, using a variety of marks, patterns and effects’, he decided to investigate Scraperboard Technique. The possibilities of this medium had fired his imagination and he came up with this response:
VOS #12 INVESTIGATING EVERY POSSIBILITY
Scraperboard Technique ~ done!
Find the Logo
As the above artwork was produced over 20 years ago, there are no logos to be found this week.
Last week, the logo could be found imprinted on the broken flowerpot, in the bottom right foreground of NOSUCH PLACE
