Graphite to plaster transfer

IMG-1417094130038-V

A process which I have become a bit enamoured with is allowing plaster to soak into a drawn image and lifting it off and holding it on the face of the plaster. Above I have the first large cast version of this process. The image was drawn onto a piece of wood which was part of the shuttering, with a round bar frame with chains connected through it. The pencil marks are soaked up and imprinted in the plaster itself. One thing I’ve always wanted to do is find a way of translating the planning and processes I do into the final articles. This could be an interesting way of translating the process.

The transference of the past existence into the present is an important part of the very existence of this structure and something I believe this process can convey.
