Further Experimentation With Acrylic and Screen Printing

These are done on plywood with acrylic paint. They have screen printed elements in the background. The background pattern is from a piece of fabric that I scanned and made into a stencil for my screen. This pattern is then covered in parts with another pattern that is painted on. I think it is important to build up a really rich background before beginning to create the focal point (the figure). I have tried to let layers on top of the background remain transparent. The figures further explore the theme of illustrating and bringing to light the animal aspects of human beings.
