Lith prints

Here are the Lith prints i did last night at my Zoom in, Workshop.

The first time i have evewr printed up my own photographs. Got as far as developing my negatives at Art School, but no further. Am quite please with the results. Supprised at how easy it was to get the hang of printing.
I experimented a bit with the choices of paper provided and the different developer, i preferred Fotospeed above the other richer tones i felt.

If someone told you that the body of a ruthless serial killer who abducted and murdered children and ate their internal organs had been embalmed and displayed for anyone to peer at – would you go to see it?

There can surely be few more macabre displays. Yet Bangkok’s forensic museum, located inside the Siriraj Hospital, has preserved a number of the nation’s most notorious criminals in this manner, as well as numerous victims of freak accidents, disease and brutal murders.

Severed limbs, the enormous scrotum of a man suffering from elephantiasis and a whole row of deformed babies are just a few more of the morbid lowlights that make this our nomination for the world’s most vile museum.

Museum of Death, L.A

Who would want to see the guillotine-severed head of the French villain Henri Landru in all its grisly glory? Or watch footage of people dying or corpses being dissected on the autopsy table? If the success of this disturbing museum is anything to go by, there are far more with such interests than you might think.

As well as an extensive serial killer art gallery, the exhibits include original photos from various notorious deaths – the Black Dahlia murders and Charles Manson crime scenes among them.

The proprietors like to think of this museum as educational, championing an understanding of our own mortality. We’ll let you be the judge.

Frank Auerbach

Im in the midst of an oil painting, of a Burned corpse i found online. The image itself looks like a painting in itself, so i feel it would lend itself to the textured look of oils. i have never used oil paint before and have wated to for sometime, but always been slightly intimidated buy them.

I like Frank Auerbach’s style moulding and shaping the painting as if moulding a sculpture with clay. Layering the pant to give form, as a posed to created detail and shadows as perhaps watercolour inks might be used.

Im using a painting trowel to apply the paint to the board. this allows me to fill a larger space at a time as well as texturising the surface and finish at the same time. I plan to layer over the paint with a brush at the final stages to create definition and detail to pick out the facial structure.
