New work from the new studio

by Chris of Christine Marie Art

NY Stroll

Here is the first piece of art completed in my new studio at the Lydia Pinkham Building in Lynn, MA. One of my studio mates is a fellow BHer... Brooke Pickering of Bancroft Studios. After working for years in a studio in my home, it's nice to have friends to chat with, more space to spread things out and not be afraid to get dirty!

This is a digital mixed media piece. The background is a heavy mixed media paper lightly textured with gesso, random acrylic washes and mark-making. The foreground is a digital collage, comprised of photos I took in Central Park. It was printed with ultrachrome pigment ink on silk gampi tissue paper, and adhered to the background. The silk gampi allows the background to show through -- with a nice depth to it. I would imagine that multiple layers would be fun to play with!
