One Leads to Another and Another and Another…

These people are each one stenciled on to the surface of its individual postcard. I did different things to each background – covered it with random magazine pictures, with print, or left it plain. Then I took my cut-out figure and painted over it. When the figure was removed, the original background remained, and I drew around it in pen to make the figure clear.

The first three postcards have feature one figure each. The last one – all three together. Take a look and you’ll see what I mean.

It’s possible to keep on doing this kind of thing all day, and none of the results will be the same, or even very similar.

These postcards were all done in July, 2016.

    These are all great and I like that reading them as a series has the individuals combining in the end – though I wonder if they are all, like me, introverts since they are still holding to their own compartmentalised space even when socialising. I am sure you can predict that my favourite is the falling (?) figure composed of a text page.

    Yes! Thank you. I think I enclose figures a lot because I associate the feeling of a small space (with the ability to get out, there has to be an opening so I don’t feel trapped) with security, and I guess I give my populations a home or a space to be safe in? It is interesting to think about.
