There are many layers of process to Mark Lovejoy’s work. Resins, oils, diluents, waxes, and drying agents are mixed and swirled to create thick gloopy textures which are then photographed. Photos are then tweaked and altered, resulting in these lush and colorful prints which you can find here. Wouldn’t these make amazing prints for apparel? The creases and folds would be an interesting intersection with the creases and folds of fabric.
