I’ve been working on H now for almost a month and I reckon I’m about 50% there with what I want to achieve. I’ve been adding extra depth today to parts of the collage to give the illusion of thickness and solidity. A photograph shows depth through use of light but my collages eat away at the smooth lines of shadow and light. In order to enhance and lift the subject I add to the surface of the collage with extra layers.
Compare this with the surface of H from October 14th and you can see clearly the extra ridges and furrows that I have created. Eventually when H is complete it will contain even more depth again. More on that process tomorrow.
