Monoprint Jo Sam The colour is a dark, high contrast and gives a tex@le look about it. Form of this Monoprint is of a young lady looking at to her leE. There is more shading and texture than lined. Detailed within the hair which have diﬀerent texture and shading to make it realis@c. The shape of the lady is with depth of the shading in the face and within the hair and gives volume of the use of lining and tone in the hair. There is out of from but half way through it has no space at all as its only showing half of the lady which is mainly her face and her long hair. Diﬀerent use of tone has been used with shading of the face and hair.
Etching -‐ Bill Murphy Plan black and white gives a pure detailed of the buildings. The form is a solid look as the buildings should be built solid with sharp and straightness of the buildings. The lines are long and narrow going diﬀerent direc@ons. The lines have gradated lining which gives the use of tonal. A rough and hard look with of the buildings. There is a lot within the etching of the buildings which makes no use of nega@ve space and posi@ve ideas of the outcome of the image. Murphy has made diﬀerent shadings and tones of the buildings crea@ng a realis@c appearance.
Collograph – CarlaTrujillo Dark deep purple making the collograph come across as pure and dull, giving the image not come out the page as it doesn’t seem that crea@ve un@l you see the lining and the swirls. A solid look with construc@ng of the purple with use of dark and light making the thin and thick lines more eﬀec@ve. The square shapes give a use of some nega@ve space as it has light shadings making it seem the texture smooth and the darks rough.
Lino -‐ Henry Polubinski It is a simple black and white lino sketching of boats, ready to go out to sea. Polubinski gives many diﬀerent lines from long to short and to thin to thick. The thickness of the lining makes the sea more realis@c, making it seem the sun is shining onto the water giving reﬂec@ons. There is no nega@ve space as it has ﬁlled the page, making it come out of the frame. The sky is seem to be a scratch eﬀect which gives a more focus to the boats coming out of the page. The texture seem rough by the scratching but giving a smooth outcome with the sea and the boats.
John Stezaker Marriage II
John Stezaker’s work re-‐examines the various rela@onships to the photographic image: as documenta@on of truth, purveyor of memory, and symbol of modern culture. In his collages, Stezaker appropriates images found in books, magazines, and postcards and uses them as ‘readymades’. The image is of a young man and woman in the 1950s, 1960s. It looks as if they are together as a married couple and their looks are well dressed, hair done, presentable looking. The image is made by two pictures of two diﬀerent people and been cut in half to and joined as to show they are a couple.
John Stezaker Wonderful Photomontage The photograph is of a young woman in the 1950s, 1960s. It is the same image with her eyes cut 3 @mes which makes the image diﬀerent then it is normally. There is a strong connec@on of the viewer and the artwork as you can observe there is more than 2 eyes.

I found it interes@ng and was inspired by John Stezaker who used old and some new to of people and cut them in half to place them together. Stezaker to get old and new images and recycling them into diﬀerent images and replacing other images which linked up the same. I used old photographs and cut them to see which picture would join together and stuck them onto black card. Old and some new images Paper/card Scissors Glue It was successful to get the right images to match up the same and the images looking humorous.
Kat Serediuk Serediuk’s work is original to many diﬀerent ar@st s in her work she has the use of using triangles. She has a use of light and dark colours which makes the triangles look 3D. The pain@ng itself is all together but the edge have nega@ve spacing and the triangles are too out of the frame of the image. There is some shading within the triangles to make it look more aﬀec@ve and seem as the light is shining towards giving shadows. They are all bunched up together to form no nega@ve space between each other and makes people think and suggest what Serediuks is telling us which makes a interest.
