Last Monday I showed work that detailed the differences between my techniques of Color Studies and Layerworks. Today we’re back in nearly every work with Color Studies. My thesis is that there are no images that can’t be incorporated into a good composition. If you rolled over a photo in your roller skates, that doesn’t disqualify the photo. But the skate marks will have to be tied in to the whole.
In almost every of these images you can point to an ingredient that would not be included in kosher work. There are color swatches, obvious inapt words, a blop of digital paint. Normally no-no-nos.
Only exception is in the Layerworks technique — layers of misbegotten screen saves. You can distinguish it immediately from the rest.
I’d like you to agree that when handled artfully these bad images aren’t.
