Set Work

Today at home I was experimenting with mark making with everyday, utilitarian objects that were lying around my flat. Using objects such as a fork, sponge, coins, scissors etc I managed to achieve some really interesting marks which I don’t think I would have otherwise thought of trying to create.

I was also trying hard not to just make one mark with the item and then move on to the next, so with most of them I managed to create at least two different marks. For example, with the fork, the different ways I used it were: putting paint on the page with a brush and then dragging down the excess with the fork; putting paint on the ends of the prongs of the fork and making dots and dashes on the page and also painting the whole of the back of the fork and rolling it onto the paper as a print.
