Journey of Suppressing Emotions Through Printmaking Art.
This printmaking art describes and brings forth a profound exploration of the human psyche, delving into the intricate interplay between our conscious and unconscious minds. At its core, it emphasizes the significant role our suppressed emotions play in shaping both the visible and hidden aspects of our thoughts and behaviors.
The techniques of etching printmaking and aquatint printmaking serve as an artistic visual representation of the complex processes that occur within our minds, highlighting how our emotions serve as catalysts for the evolution of our thoughts. Suppressing emotions, whether acknowledged or repressed, act as powerful forces driving the constant flux of conscious and unconscious mental activity.
Within the unconscious mind lies a myriad of elements that often remain unseen or unacknowledged, including repressed feelings, latent skills, instinctual reactions, and submerged fears and desires. These elements, though hidden from our conscious awareness, exert a profound influence on our suppressed thoughts, behaviors, and perceptions of the world around us.
Moreover, the unconscious mind houses a reservoir of emotions, thoughts, and memories that may be deemed unacceptable or unpleasant by social standards. This includes experiences of pain, anxiety, conflict, and other challenging emotions that we may attempt to suppress or ignore in our day-to-day lives.
Ultimately, this exploration of the unconscious serves as a reminder of the richness and depth of the human mind, to embrace the complexity of their suppressing emotions and engage in a deeper understanding of themselves and others.
The printmaking techniques in this Print are known as aquatint and etching, the etching is used to create rigid lines and aquatint produces a tonal effect by constantly giving an acid bath in different time intervals to the printing plate that bites into it, creating areas which holds the ink.
