I have been playing around with Cross processing.
I stumbled upon this when I worked at Avoncolor labs in the 90’s, much to the utter dismay of the company..
Cross processing happens when you develop C41 film (normal film) with E6 developing chemicals (E6 is used for transparencies). Or vis a vis, E6 to C41.
I done this by mistake and the company had to pay compensation to the client, which ran into the low thousands!! Not a great day at all.
However I loved the effect it produced, and I played around with cross processing a bit more.. but stopped it about two years later.
I am revisiting this process again.
(In an earlier post I mentioned about a new process i am working through, this is not it.. the other process involves lots of painted cardboard .. I will update more when i have it.)

Listen To This – 2015. A2 size.
Minimal Abstract. I would like to say that this took me one morning, but it took about two days. Really getting into colour and weight more and more. i like how weight can skew your perception, when viewing it as abstraction. or some other malarky. (ad lib to fade..)
New work. I am posting this one, on the fly..cos just finished it, (3 weeks so far) but after a few alterations, it should be up on sale soon on Etsy. £180. (70cm x 100cm)
Tantrum – 2015. mixed media hand signed print.
Light Confusion – 2015.
Neon Is The Colour Of Sun Rays. 2015.
Here is some new work I have been working on, My muse this time is Neon lighting, not the object itself, but how it’s light plays on surfaces, and the bizzare shadows they cast. sometimes jarring, ever present and somehow other worldly.. gases and sparks. click.
Both are Photomontage Mixed media on Museum quality paper. A2 & A3 Sizes.
Please let me know what you think, as these are getting even more abstract and more wilder, But I hope it has a sense of fun.. as usual the prints look far better than on here, lots of deep blacks (five shades!), crisp lines and colors that will Pop!
