So today I started to explore the cut out drawings I made on my first visit to the brain bank in Salford.
I set out with some idea of how I might approach printing images, using stencils and ghost prints. What I forgot was that firstly I always struggle with the mirror image aspect of most print making but add to it the cut out of the stencil: the seduction of both positive and negative and then the materials interacting with each other.
The images are not dry to scan here but they showed me something unexpected, playful and at the same time something that may have already been there, like the figure inside the block of marble.
And I was using my brain.
