“You Break My Heart Into A Thousand Pieces And You Say It’s Because I Deserve Better”
A new halftone stencil I did, moving more into an experimental direction. For the first time in 1,5 years I cut my stencil out of paper instead of acetate, for comfort reasons. It initially was supposed to be a plain black & white stencil (shown below). But once I had that one nailed, I figured I might as well experiment some and see how it works with all kinds of bright colours. Turns out it works really well and looks a lot better than plain black and white. Click ‘Read More’ to see the black and white version.
This is the first step of many in an attempt to ‘innovate’ halftone stenciling. I want to add an additional layer of creativity to it, make the technique ‘my own’. This stencil consisted of 27.500 hand-cut squares (pre-painted version in picture #3). It took me eleven days to cut and another day to paint it.
It was made in June 2011 and received a lot of positive response. The halftone is 60×90 centimetres in size, painted on 400gsm acid free paper, 70×100 centimetres in size.
