This image felt like a freight train when I made it. The original image doesn't have much to see, however certain elements felt they needed elaborated. The original print was a shot of the Montreal metro at Peel station. They had an image of a fire, and a lady repeated. So yes, you can probably see in your head not much going on. I started going through some stock and decided to add catastrophe. Not for context, just to make it appear more interesting. So I added two prints overlayed with dye on top of the original which was converted from black and white to color chemistry. After that print I felt it still needed something more. Again, the freight train. So I added a print of a lake shore. No idea why, just felt right. Afterwards I felt the scene needed some grounding, so I layered in a photo of some chairs from the very same metro system, different station in Montreal. Afterward, it felt normal, so I thought it was finished. After washing the last print, it looked too matted, so I added a varnish of oil medium mixed with wax, and this is what you get.
For me it was a freight train, I accomplished this print in one night with no direction or real intentions. It's the basis of what I used to do, going along for the ride and seeing what my hands could do when disconnected from reason. I still don't see much, although the original catastrophe theme still seems relevant in a way.
Thank you for taking a look, let me know what you think, I love feedback on these old images I made. :)
