A Print Development Initiative


Monochromatic Montage

A Print Development Initiative by Laboni Saha


THE PROJECT The Project –Monochromatic Montage is a self initiated Project .It has been created as a further development of a Motif creation assignment done in my first year of College. The motifs created were not typical motifs. These motifs were created by abstraction and combination of several pictures taken as inspiration. Put together as a single(abstract) picture. These motifs were further short listed and repeated in different ways to create the prints. The initial assignment had only one story and one final print was developed. However I have further worked on the assignment to create a project consisting of Five stories resulting in five final Prints. This project also focuses on the inspiration and application of these prints. Behind every print developed there is a clientele in mind and small collections of attires have been created with apt placement of these prints in relation to the Story. The simple technique of cutting and pasting has been used in this project to create abstract prints. The initial pictures have meanings, the initial pictures have a story ,but the final prints are like secrets The stories and meaning are all existent in them, but they are illegible. They are not visible to the viewers eye. They don’t make sense to the human mind. They are pictures ,without an obvious view. They have meaning s but the expression is new.


THE INSPIRATION The initial inspiration came from some very beautiful and lively picture of Marilyn Monroe(source LIFE Magazine). In this motley world of colors the beauty of grey is forgotten. But it’s the old that is more intense. It is the old that has far reaching effect on our hearts .The black and white pictures somehow have a deeper meaning compared to the shallow beauty of color and fabrication. They are colorless yet vivid. Maybe because they are old yet important. They are gone yet preserved..Memories are always of great importance to the beholders heart. They will always be, because they don’t fade. The theme Monochromatic Montage is all about old pictures, gone moments, but treasured memories.


Achromart Achromart is a name derived from the achromatic color scheme and the artworks forming the initial elements of the print.These Artworks are purpose oriented ,some are abstract,some indicate a moral ,some conveys a message.Altogether when forming a Montage they create an abstract base for a strange scenery.They don’t have words or emotions . Yet they are a bold form of expression, created with a bolder vision.

Roadawrecks The abandoned house ,the broken roads,old forgotten path,with abode of memories.. There are reason behind the rusty doors and vision in the dusty floors. The inspiration for this range of prints came from a series of old ,abandoned,worn out buildings. They lie deserted without denizens,but there are flashes of memories,pictures of cheerful events and incidents,hidden in every nook and corner .Once alive,now dormant. Still there is a strange beauty,in them‌more than the word beautiful could describe.
