Title: The Stage of Value
Materials: Inking brush pens (black, dark gray, and light gray) and book pages from Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
For this project the artist chose to articulate value, the lightness and darkness of a color. Using inking brush pens to block out specific words, Jiao chose the word “stage” to incorporate the fact that Macbeth is a famous play itself. Using the skill of placement, the page shows value from the darkest blacks to no color at all.
