Ian Petrie

Philadelphia, PA

Born from the inherently black and white nature (in aesthetics and ethics) of the comics/manga universe, the surfaces of my pieces are used as utilitarian canvases to explore individuals' narratives. To this end, my work is made using very traditional comic/manga materials and processes. The illustrations are drawn with a crow-quill pen, shaded with an application of half-tones, and ultimately screen printed by hand. On some of my pieces I utilize gold or silver luster to intentionally censor part of my drawing.
