I don’t remember when I did this but I found it on my camera so I thought I would share it.
I remember it was taken from a black and white photo of my hand, and then I scanned it and manipulated it in photo shop.
It was called lifeline. I don’t know where it is now. It just seems appropriate for the situation at the moment.
So many years ago, 2003 was when I did this art work. The hand print was a photocopy of my hand I think. Then I used photoshop to add colours using flood fill and a drawing tool. Finally I used one of the texture tools to break the image up into shards.
16 years on its at my studio at Spode. I really want to do more experimental stuff. I have been trying to get in the front room where my computer is but it’s full of my partners train stuff which I don’t want to move.
Life can be complicated. You have to have give and take. That’s what my lifeline was shining I guess (although I don’t believe in that kind of thing).
