While I was making ‘Enlightened’ I had to really be intentional with each stroke and splash of color. At this point, while I was making this piece is when I started to embrace how not only the texture and movement of the ink change - but so does the color. The pops of rust colors seen is from the the chemical reactions of dyes and saline.
The original was made on wood where I took different inks & used its “opposites” to compliment and impose chemical reactions. This was done on a coated wood panel, mixing alcohol inks with various water based solutions, water based inks & fabric dyes with varying percentages of alcohol. Once it all set and dried - the panel was then coated in non-toxic resin epoxy to seal it. Since the wood is porous, it took to the ink in a different way where some of the wood grain becomes part of the piece.
The original is available for sale through MK Apothecary.
