"TRAFFIC LIGHT" WATERCOLOR + 35MM FILM COMPOSITE

 Painted with Sakura watercolors

Painted with Sakura watercolors

My first attempt at blending the surreal transience of watercolor with the harsh indexical realities of 35mm film. Here my subject was a New York City traffic light, a staple of the urban jungle or post-modern cosmopolitanism. Blending was done on paper with a variety of techniques including water blotting and tissue paper.
