Warhol’s 1984 ink blot paintings were inspired by the 1920’s Swiss psychological tests used to examine personality characteristics. While each of the 38 massive half paintings (one side was folded over the other to create the second half of the print) have a lot of unique individual characteristics, we felt it best to create a traditional styled damask pattern that showcases the designs in a wreath of themselves. Analyze that.
