By doing so, I think I might have the persistence, sequence and continuity in my work. I can also possess this as means for creating a huge discourse regarding my work.
As for my previous prints, in fact, I have been greatly influenced by prints of Goya and Arthur Rackham’s illustrations since I began learning about printmaking. For instance, if you look at Goya’s prints, it is possible to see the realities of society at that time. Like this, I can use my work as material for the storytelling of my era. In addition, colours of Illustrations of Arthur Rackham make me assimilate emotional aspects and visualise the text more effectively.
Since I saw these illustrations, I eventually added some colours to my own prints. In general, the works of the two artists have some similarities of expression like the vintage effect. It seems to be making our minds more emotional. So, I have also used these effects to express my thoughts and emotions more effectively.
