Stencilling is a great ways to add new design elements
to upcycled clothing. Stencils by their nature make
extremely flat images.
These photos, though hard to figure out, are stencils
shown in a new way. All of the stencils shown are cut from
acetate, except the hand shape which is made of cardboard.
In their many printings ,each has been either sprayed with
paint or hand printed. This leaves ghostly
after-images around the openings.
In these photographs, they overlap and are transformed
into mysterious and beautiful abstact figures. .
