Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Arkansas Black is a monotype print created using reductive as well as additive methods. First, etching ink was applied to a plexiglass plate using a palette knife. The image was then refined by wiping away the ink, drawing into it, and carefully removing top layers of ink to create value. Once the image was completed, a sheet of dampened printmaking paper was laid over the plate. The plate and paper were run through a press, and the ink was transferred to the paper.

Because the image existed solely within the layer of ink, only one full print was pulled from the plate - a monotype.

This work depicts a cliffside in Arkansas. Swimming in the river below, I found myself intrigued by the rock formations, chasms, and textures of the towering cliff above.

Nature has the incredible capacity to invoke deep introspection. In my art practice, I use
nature as a catalyst for looking within. I reflect upon the details of the land, representing it while meditating. In doing so, I discover connections between myself and nature. Aspects
of my subconscious emerge. The more I work, the more I reconnect with nature and the more I discover about myself. Nature shows me who I am.
