Where there is a process to making art that simply involves following instinct, with no desire to imagine any particular fate for that "work of art" there exists the likelihood of it failing to hit any particular buttons, or fall into pre-defined categories.
I realised a week or two ago that what I'm making lately are in fact Digital Monoprints. This one I have titled Left Side Brain, because what you see in the foreground is structured and controlled in a way with its predefined shapes. and its semi-organised format, the background is definitely right side brain!
Isn't it nice to just play? I have worked hard to achieve this method, but the final image is a source of joy sometimes! It's not reproducible, so it's a one-off. I could attempt to scan it and reproduce it for prints, but I'm frightened of scratching it with the scanner rollers. Don't laugh - It happened once. There was a lump of paint that was kind of standing proud, and it got caught and made a tram-line across the entire image! So my output has changed from Limited Edition prints to Digital Monoprints! I was never too comfortable with all that limited edition nonsense. It's a bit of a joke unless and until everyone knows your name...
