Monotype and Other Prints 2003-2007
I revived an early interest in monotype printing with a fellowship at Women’s Studio Workshop in Rosendale New York in 2003. I returned to WSW for another fellowship in 2005, and then spent a residency working on the presses at Vermont Studio Workshop In 2006.
Monotype has always seemed like a perfect process to me, as it combines painterliness and graphic flatness. The printing process evocatively captures a painterly mark. The process lends itself to a play between illusionistic and graphic readings, a juxtaposition not unlike that of collage.
Most of these images are press-based monotype prints, but some are silk-screen monotype prints, and some are matrix based prints, such as linocuts and woodcuts.
