Abstract

The aim of this study is to explore the possibilities of how the surface of the background affects the foreground, which is the image of my face. When viewing an image produced by the printmaking process it can be seen that while surface is a part of the image, reciprocally, the image becomes a part of the surface. The projects I have conceived and implemented were based on exploring this phenomenon of the reciprocal interaction of image and canvas. The invisible support of the surface becomes visible. The reading of the art works is as background to the study, such as concepts of face, as in the face does not belong to the body, and surface as in the oscillation between beneath and above. Finally, I will discuss my screen prints in terms of techniques and especially, of the aforementioned concepts of Face and Surface.
