Positive/Negative Space Acrylic Gel Transfers
In this project, students combined digital and analog technologies to produce a finished work on canvas board. First, we studied compositional strategies and how to use positive and negative space relationships to produce an interesting image. Then, students supplied original photographic imagery, which we edited together in Photoshop and printed. Finally, we use acrylic gel medium to transfer these prints onto canvas boards toned with acrylic paint, resulting in photographic imagery with an interesting surface texture.
