I have been wondering how to replicate this “negative effect” into the analogue world. It’s so easy and quick to do in the digital world, but somehow a real painted version would be a challenge.
I like the way the line becomes so brilliant and energised and how the sloppy paint becomes so fragile and floaty – sort of like aura photography, resonating in harmony with the meandering line.
Maybe I should use perspex painted black, mounted on a brilliant white background – the black scraped and scratched to produce the image.
And then experiment with coloured versions, like this chunky nude.
