Blackened Star Petal Opening

Blackened Star Petal Opening, Rubright, 1990 Mixed Media, Artist Collection

Back to my work. I love geometry and math. This piece reminds me of pedals opening and incorporates the black space that I find so interesting. The process for this piece is to create one quarter of the design in a vector program like Illustrator. This was actually created in SuperPaint on the Mac in the 90’s. I would create a quarter of the design then flip vertical and make half of the design then flip the half to make a whole design. I then printed the design on a laser printer. Next, I turned the design/page over and scribbled on the page with a black marker in such a way that some of the scribble covers the design. Then I turn the page over and fill in the areas with a black marker that are bleeding through the page. Then I get out the color pencils and sharpies and color the design by hand. Then I scan it back on the computer so I can make infinite copies. So writing about this piece I get excited about doing more…
