Construction 1 is a collage, made with prepared papers. This one seems to have picked up something of a Suprematist feel, although all I was trying to do was keep it simple. I made this, one of a series of related pieces, in early 2022.
Compared to my monotype prints, they are graphically quite simple, but I can still see themes carrying through. I seem to have developed a liking for stripes, for example, which turn up in a lot of the monotypes. The same is coming through in this series of images.
The prepared papers are made by gel printing, then adhered to A4 Mixed Media paper, about 250 gsm. I use acrylic medium as the glue, which bonds well with the acrylic paint on the papers. The collage is in an A3 frame with a simple black moulding and a plain white mount. For safety and to reduce weight, the frame has acrylic glazing.
