    Monoprint. 12" x 13"4.5 cm x 5 cm

    A monoprint is a hybrid process transferring on paper the expressive qualities of painting and drawing mark-making via a plate. The plate cannot print more than one image, thus each print is unique. The monoprints were produces by drawing with ink on a plastic plate and then transferring the image to paper. During the transfer the image drawn is modified due to the quality of the ink and the pressure applied. In this proceeds I enjoy relinquishing control to the materials and allowing them to produce the final image.

    This series was inspired by alchemical manuscripts, which I find particularly significant in their ability to convey a complex narrative strictly through the use imagery.
