ARTWORKS RELATED TO AUTO-DESTRUCTIVE ART
Refers to a printmaking that is made by painting or drawing on a nonabsorbent, smooth surface. Historically, the surface was an etching plate of copper, but these days, the surface can vary from acrylic to zinc or glass. Image is transferred to a sheet of paper where the two are pressed by use of printing press. The process creates a unique print called monotype. The initial pressing removes most of the ink.
Textile is the term used to describe a flexible material formed by weaving, felting, crocheting, knitting or knotting long strands of natural or artificial yarn or thread. Textile artists often create their own textiles, or use selected ones in fabric art compositions.
Also known as Chromogenic or C type print. A print that's made from slide or color negative exposed to chromogenic paper containing three emulsion layers sensitized to non similar primary colors. Once the image is exposed, it is dipped into a chemical bath for each layer to react towards the chemical so as to create an image.
