Can one visualise emotions without colours and expressions? Emotion refers to the affective state of consciousness in which joy, sorrow, fear, hate, or the like, is experienced, as distinguished from cognitive & volitional states of consciousness. The traditional techniques of ink and wash painting along with mono-printing were incorporated into this entire work. The objective of this project is to explore expressive mark making through use of traditional & digital tools. The collection of 36 images are aligned in such a way that it reflects the level or degree of difficulty on expressing a certain emotion. ANGER was the most easiest emotion to portray while SURPRISE being at the bottom, was the most hardness emotion to portray.

  • 3. P a g e | 3 3 | P a g e { page 01 } The methodologies: Ink & Wash Painting + Mono-Printing * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Ink & Wash Painting ( Adapted from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ink_and_wash_painting ) Ink & wash painting is an East Asian type of brush painting also known as ink wash painting. Only black ink — the same as used in East Asian calligraphy — is used, in various concentrations. Shading in ink wash painting refers to the varying ink density produced by grinding an ink stick in water. Ink wash painting artists spend years practicing basic brush strokes to refine their brush movement & ink flow. Here are some of the scanned ink-&-wash-painting originals that I’ve done up during class: In the hand of a master, a single stroke can produce astonishing variations in tonality, from deep black to silvery gray. Thus, in its original context, shading means more than just dark-light arrangement, it is the basis for the beautiful nuance in tonality unique to East Asian ink wash painting & brush-and-ink calligraphy.
  • 4. P a g e | 4 4 | P a g e { page 02 } Mono-Printing( Adapted from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monoprinting ) Monoprinting is a form of printmaking that has images or lines that can only be made once, unlike most printmaking, where there are multiple originals. There are many techniques of monoprinting. Examples of standard printmaking techniques which can be used to make monoprints include lithography, woodcut, & etching. Here are some of the scanned monoprinting originals that I’ve done up during class: Monoprints are known as the most painterly method among the printmaking techniques; it is essentially a printed painting. The characteristic of this method is that no two prints are alike. The beauty of this medium is also in its spontaneity & its combination of printmaking, painting & drawing media.
  • 5. P a g e | 5 5 | P a g e { page 03 } The process experimentations: The objective of this project is to explore expressive mark making through use of traditional & digital tools. All resulted drawings are to be categorized into 6 corresponding emotions:  ANGER  DISGUST  FEAR  SADNESS  HAPPINESS  SURPRISE The next few pages depict some of the documentation & process that has gone through for some of my best works for this project.     

  • 18. P a g e | 18 18 | P a g e { page 16 } The final presentation: The presentation was designed entirely to suit to the project & the grid-inspired direction. The type of paper used was a MATT ART-CARD that weighs around 260gsm & was printed on gray-scale mode at Image&Print, Sunshine Plaza for about SGD$ 7.00 for the entire printage. The images are aligned in such a way that it reflects the level or degree of hardness on expressing a certain emotion. ANGER was the most easiest emotion to portray while SURPRISE being at the bottom, was the most hardness emotion to portray. Truthfully speaking, about 75% of the images about weren’t really digitally analyzed while the other 25% of the images were really, very much digitally process. Overall, it was a fun experience that enables me to showcase my software skills & talents.
