Gelli Women

My gelli plate has been a little neglected recently... tossed aside for wooden eyeball paintings the last few months and stunted by my perpetual hope for the 12' x 14" one to appear at Dick Blick so I can use a 40% off coupon on it (dreams!) But as I am apt to do and fueled by a couple new stencils, this weekend it was time to bring the gelli plate back out again for some fun! Also, out of curiosity, I decided to do a time lapse video of the process. It's weird to watch it myself for many reasons... The fact that I was only really working on the 8 prints (and a couple more that weren't finished) for about 90 minutes based on the number of photos (I would have guessed a few hours.) Some of the breaks are me just wandering off to do something else including cutting quite a few stencils, letting things dry, sleeping or putting on more music. The fact that I work on so many prints simultaneously and the ways the resulting prints are similar and different.

Ok, too much rambling! Time for some art!

The process.....

...and the results!

  1. This is a cool idea! I love how you texturize a layer to serve as the hair for the silhouettes.
    I wish I could better follow which layers were for which prints.
