I worked today in the printshop looking for the next stage for these monotypes. At this point, I’ve decided to keep going with these 36″ x 24″ monotypes printed on Rives BFK. Additionally, I’ll create another body of prints which are printed on interfacing and organza fabric and layered on top of each other. These prints on Rives BFK are images are of single figures wading in water. In a lot of ways, I see these prints as the “solution” to the social isolation seen in the lithographic crayon drawings of figure groups; that being physically alone is sometimes the most “comfortable” place for an individual.
I tried to take a more minimal approach to the monotypes today, attempting to suggest an atmosphere and space with as few reflections and ripples as possible in the water.
This image below was trying to see how much I get away with, using as few marks as possible.
