- Particularly her Year of the dog series – along with Swoon (her street artwork including relief prints) as artists who utilize relief and collage and/or digital in their work – site your reference images.
Write a one page paper addressing the role that the collage and digital elements play in creating your image content. (writer i will attatch the images in the materials).
What I did : Your completed series needs to incorporate a repetition/pattern – research the pattern & decoration movement P&D that Pfaff is considered part of… you may also incorporate concrete imagery based on biology, geology, mapping, etc.
If needed, use a registration system appropriate for your image. A unified (and subdued) color scheme is highly suggested – mix your colors! Do not use them straight from the can!! Experiment with differing woodgrains, papers, colored papers, thin natural based textiles/fabrics and combinations thereof. You may collage these before printing or after. However, make sure your image is unified!
