I’ve planned to experiment with print since the beginning of my project because I feel like it would be interesting to print on different materials and experiment with composition. I made a variety of stenciled based on imagery I’ve been using in my work so far along with patterns gained from my experiments with frottage. I haven’t screen printed in a long time so it took me a while to get into the rhythm of it. The majority of my prints haven’t come out well due to the fact I made my stencils out of paper which was too thick and I kept flooding the screen instinctively instead of leaving it clear so that the marks I made translated onto the paper from the screen. I have continued to work into my imperfect prints with various materials using the shapes and patterns that already existed from the stencils and the ink.
