Monotype, 2020 Etching ink on Rives BFK paper
My monotypes are usually created in a single pass through the press. All of the colors are applied to the plate together before the image is transferred to paper. I use viscosity technique, in which inks of varying viscosities (thick and thin) are applied in layers onto the plate and interact in myriad ways. The textures and juxtapositions that result from this commingling of substances are rich and organic, like those found in nature, resulting in images rich in atmosphere and depth.
This piece is from art a series of works titled Fantastical Flora. I love trees and find them to be sentient and expressive. When I encounter an especially old, large, or otherwise impressive tree, I wonder what they have witnessed over their long lives and what they feel.
