This is the very first induction in LCC and also the first time contact Mono-relief. I am so excited to learn other kinds of art form besides film with my teacher Klara and Andrew. And there is my feelings of these and what I have learned in induction.

What is Mono-relief?

First part is Monoprint, it is a kind of art that use reprintable block to print images on paper or other materials, and it is able to collage images by using different blocks.  

Making process

First get a reprintable bolck

Then get the oil ready

Prepare the pigment on the roller

Roll on the block

Put the block on the machine and put the paper on it, then out the blanket on it

And pull it right at the point

Bingo! One color is ready

Then tried three different blocks with three different colors, then a piece of art comes

First roll the pigments on the roller

Then cut the shape of paper and put the fragments on the print paper(or anything). The machine needs to be prepared!

And roll the roller 3 times and one comes out

In 2 times with different shape of paper design, arts coming out

My reflection

I literally think that it is interesting and can be infinity, because Mono-relief can not only using paper but also anything. I can print anything on any kinds of layers. For me it is a really good way to transmit culture and art. It break the rule that we can only draw on papers, makes it have nearly endless imagination space to do arts.

I use to think about religion and I collect gaps and wrote story about it, I truly think that this part can be a extraordinary way to delivery the believe that I made in my story about the Gap. So I would like to spend a hole day in this place.
