Abstracting Emotions #8

(C) JOHN FANSMITH 2019

ABSTRACTING EMOTIONS #8 is the eighth in my “Abstracting Emotions” Series which uses two different types of my handmade paper. The printing, a hand inked and hand pulled dark field monotype, was done on paper made from scrap watercolor, BFK, and business correspondence paper which were shredded, boiled together, sheeted and Plexiglas dried to create a white/off white relatively monochromatic and smooth printing paper. The print was then mounted on a different sheet of my handmade paper which was made from scrap black and brown BFK, watercolor and business correspondence in order to create a patterned and textured counterpoint to the print. In a way ABSTRACTING EMOTIONS #’S 6 and 8 are companion pieces. (16” x 16”) (2019) ($250.00)
