the death of ink printing

Some prints i was messing about with today. Inked up a plastic bag then drew onto a paper when over the ink, to produce reverse image, which i flipped using computer.

images are of a suicide who cut throat, Jack the ripper victim and of a man who died from stab wounds.

i will do a proper series when i can buy/find a metal or acrylic sheet to get a more flat surface rather than compete with plastic bag wrinkles 😛

Dig her up and wear her for dinner a dinner for two..

Here is my ed gein Painting (taken again with my crappy camera phone).

This has been so far painted with Black Gesso as the base for the background, and molding paste, you cant see in the picture, but the figure has been built up with lots of texture and given a 3d quality. I applied both gesso and Paste with a palette knife to achieve form and a rough texture to then paint onto.
I plan to leave this to dry throughly before decided to use food on the canvas. I also want to experiment with thin paint that will drip down the canvas to give less of a graphic look and more painterly….again all things to be tried and tested.

dead skin mask

 

Browsing through the web for more Ed Gein info came across a band called Slayer who wrote a song inspired by Gein. Here i share with you the lyrics:

(Jeff Hanneman/Tom Araya)
[talking]
How I’ve waited for you to come
Ive been here all alone
And now that you’ve arrived
Please stay awhile
And i promise i wont keep you long
I’ll keep you forever

Graze the skin with my finger tips
The brush of dead cold flesh appease the means
Provoking images delicate features so smooth
A pleasant fragrance in the light of the moon

CHORUS
Dance with the dead in my dreams
Listen to their hallowed screams
The dead have taken my soul
Temptation’s lost all control

Simple smiles elude psychotic eyes
Lose all mind control rationale declines
Empty eyes enslave the creations
Of placid faces and lifeless pageants

In the depths of a mind insane
Fantasy and reality are the same

Graze the skin with my finger tips
The brush of dead warm flesh pacifies the means
Incised members ornaments on my being
Adulating the skin before me

Simple smiles elude psychotic eyes
Lose all mind control rationale declines
Empty eyes enslave the creations
Of placid faces and lifeless pageants

CHORUS

Here also i found another tribute to the MAster serial killer, a selection of Halloween props-including Gein’s Cereal bowl skull. I’m thinking of maybe getting one, as a cereal addict-ive been known to kill for a bowl…:P

Having made a rough layout for the victim painting i havent quite made up my mind about the type of paint to use. I had briefly thought to use ‘food’ as well as or in place of actual ‘paint’. Melted licorice as the background and havent really thought about the figure. Although i like the smell/taste aspect to this piece, id worry about the longevity to this new media. How would it affect its value etc.
I should of course experiment first to work out these questions before working on such a large size.

That reminds me i should try to remake my Necklace of ears as written by a policeman of things he had found on his murder investigation casebook.

Reading – High Fidelity

Preliminary layout for Ed Gein large scale Painting

 

I plan to use an Impasto technique, with Black Gesso and acrylic and figure out what to use as a texture base to paint on.

Autopsy sketch Stab wound

Stabwound small jpeg i found on the net. Thought this might work well as a print-perhaps a lithograph.
I hope to clear a space in the shed to use as a makeshift studio come photo developing area for pinhole exposures.

I wish i could find these type of images on a larger pixel quality, a lot of the lines im making are based on guesswork.

Ted Bundy

Theodore Robert “Ted” Bundy, born Theodore Robert Cowell (November 24, 1946 – January 24, 1989) was an American serial killer active between 1973 and 1978. He twice escaped from county jails before his final apprehension in February 1978. After more than a decade of vigorous denials, he eventually confessed to over 30 murders, although the actual total of victims remains unknown. Estimates range from 26 to over 100, the general estimate being 35. Typically, Bundy would bludgeon his victims, then strangle them to death. He also engaged in rape and necrophilia. Bundy was executed by electric chair for his last murder by the state of Florida in 1989
