2021 Spring Exhibition > Christine Nguyen

The inspiration for my Inkblot series comes from the inkblot test. I first produced these works in a watercolor and collage class. The artwork is made from sumi ink, gold watercolor, then I photographed my artwork to edit my artwork on my iPad with a program called iPad Procreate. I really truly enjoy the process of putting ink on the paper and folding it in a variety of ways to see what shapes I can get on the paper. There are nights where I would be up drawing on my iPad, then I decided to draw imaginative lines directly onto the inkblot drawings I took a photo of. I wanted to fill in space with expressive lines or fill around the gold watercolor specs in the artworks. I feel it is important to be imaginative in my works of art. Each difference that comes out is the same colors; however, they portray a unique shape each and every time. It is smaller details that I focus on in the inkblots. These are personal to me because I get to be more creative in my artwork.
