SPIRALLING

Combining paint, sunlight, and photography, Spiralling is a abstract series containing meaningless yet visually interesting psychedelic imagery. The images were obtained by taking large sheets of acetate, covering it in layers of red paint (ranging in technique from watery, thin coats to thick encrusted impasto smears), and then applying the acrylics in a chaotic matter. From here, the dried sheet was hung on a window, where bright midday sun shone fiercely onto the acetate; this was then photographed from a variety of angles and times of day, allowing for different lighting effects and faint backgrounds (heavily distorted cityscapes can be seen in the distance).

From here, a large amount of digital processing was applied to the images to transform the plain red colouring into vivid multicolours. Images were frequently chopped up and digitally modified / stitched together to complete the desired work, and final digital files were outputted at the end of this multimedia hybrid process.
