A fourth figure added to Joanna Ham’s incredibly popular Woman series, a nod to the Sports Luxe fans among us.
Each of the pieces in this series start as a meticulously crafted mixed media collage made from magazine cuttings, adverts and drawings. This is then transformed into a monochrome photogram – a darkroom method where an object is exposed directly to light on photosensitive paper. This unpredictable stage unlocks the image creating a striking abstract silhouette which Joanna then goes on to deconstruct and rebuild electronically. It is at this point she adds the face, expression and accessories – fine details hand drawn from her imagination to suit the mood of the figure. Once the piece is complete, it’s transferred to silk screen – returning the image to its original form of half tone dots, a technique used by newspapers and magazines. Joanna then works with Print Club’s Head Printer, Marco Lawrence, to pull the final limited edition print on 430gsm paper with a deckled edge.
