Blasting Porn Star in Blue

I have continued to overprint this image with a newly developed screen portraying a cocktail called Porn Star.  I have manipulated a primary source photograph to make it more ambiguous and harder to read.  This openness to interpretation is totally intentional and desirable.  I would also like to continue to overprint this work to make the surface more distressed and tired.  The breaking of top layers gives a very sensitive effect allowing the viewer to question what is underneath. My creative intention is to create a sense of curiosity. I am hoping to experiment with a greater amount of blending of colours between individual layers and employing a range of secondary colours using more transparent inks, alternating warmer and colder tones.

The other accidental effect, which I would like to continue to explore further is the dripping of washed out colours.  This spontaneous process allows me to achieve an improved fluidity of colour and a more appropriate cohesion and bonding between the under and over images.

I am intrigued and inspired by the heavy texture scrunched up textures, which I have managed to develop.  This is opens up an opportunity to isolate and enlarge smaller sections of this composition to reveal their hidden content.

This is also significant through its metaphorical meaning and connotations.
