Coffee and Curacao on Canvas
Coffee and Curacao on Canvas
Illustrations elaborated from coffee, blue curacao on black and white acrylic based canvas. Variety of creatures evolving from blue curacao, coffee and colored ink on black and white acrylic based canvas.
70 x 100 cm

Same technique as usual:
FIRST there where the splotches. Creatures and scenes evoked by the blots were "found" and elaborated afterwards:

"The way Angela works is based on “apophenia”. That´s a term used by psychologists to describe the pursuit of the human mind to construct meaning, order and forms even from chaotic structures - just like seeing faces in the clouds.First she prepares sheets of paper with splotches of coffee, several kinds of tea or juice to create those patterns. Those form the visual origin from which she creates her drawings. Subsequently she elaborates an individual interpretation of weird looking characters and sceneries her imagination “detects” in the coincidental blurs. The motifs she finds in the visually stimulant material are extracted from the patterns by drawing with colored ink. Though they are carefully worked out in detail her pictures provide a wide range of interpretation, different approaches and scope to “see more”."

Thanks! :-)
I know it has a different look compared to my paper based work,
but the splotches still give away the origin.
