New work, “PRIME” A2 size.

More experiments with cross processing .. and placement of objects on a 2D plane.
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.)

Whatever You Want. A2 size. Fine art print.
I have been playing around with colours and shapes from two previous paintings, and spent a maddening 16/18 hours fiddling with gravity.
On Saturday night I went to Eastville project space, art gallery in Yeovil, to catch the end of Fiona Winning’s super art show, “as i saw it”.
Then stayed to watch Assembled Minds, and pHarmerz play a live set to a small but informed crowd in the gallery.
If you recall, I designed their new album “20 Acid Clonk greats” So it was a thrill to see them play live.. they have their own take on acid house, and it is a force to be reckoned with! It is free form acid.. and the huge sound that engulfs you.
Assembled Minds opened the show, playing new material.. the riffs he makes are quite something.. odd but compelling. and the last two pieces had people nodding and swaying in his world.
It was an amazing night, nice to catch up, and meet with new people there.
I brought along my camera and took 122 photos.. but unfortunately my camera got condensation inside, so taking photos in a dark room with a blurry viewfinder added some chaos.
assembled minds and pHarmerz were both amazing. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Assembled Minds is Matt Saunders
pHarmerz are: Farmer Glitch (Ex Hacker Farm) and Nick Edwards (Ekoplekz, Emmplekz, and Ekoclef).
Here are a small selection. ~~For more info and sounds please click the links above.
