Abstract 7 Series 2

For the next 3 weeks I shall be posting various abstract comics.

First up, more experimentation with painting gutters on found images. With Abstract 7 I wanted to see what would happen if I used spray paint. Its interesting It did something I wasn’t quite expecting.

With the previous ones the gutter has the effect of joining all the images together because within it there are marks, movement, proof of human activity.

So the comic can be read as either one image or a collection of images.

Using the spray paint on the other hand creates a collection of discrete images floating in a sea of flat colour, of void, of nothing.

I don’t know how successful it is. Check out the previous six starting here for comparison.

Annoyingly the masking tape was a pain. Trying to remove it usually resulted in bits of the image coming off.
