Ray Johnson Fan Club Relationship LXXXII ~ “Flexible COMFORT Cola zero”
This 82nd “Relationship” collage was completed 5/15/2014 in my home studio (Mons, Belgium). This is my first piece made experimenting with “wood block” printing of lines and shapes. For quite a while now I’ve been toying around with the idea of making several series of collages on the pages of old books or comic books. This one is from “page 207” of some random Flemish sexploitation/horror comic. The large green numbers are a continuation of my work with wooden printers blocks.
I really think this is part of the necessary transitional stage toward a good direction for my collage work. I need to find a better method for using the wood to print lines and shapes. The colored paints stick to the paper making it difficult to pull away. For my “blocks” I’m just really using random wooden things from around the house, like the side of a fruit crate for the black lines, a chopstick for the thin yellow lines, and the back of a number block for the 4 red rectangles.
This piece is currently available.
