Artist's description:

Here Now is a monotype print created using a reductive method. First, a layer of black etching ink was rolled out onto a plexiglass plate. The image was then created 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.

I had the privilege of living in Northwest Arkansas for several years, taking extended explorations through its lush forests, mountains, and rivers. At any time, I could hike out into vast expanses of nature for hours without coming across another human. Sometimes it was as if I was the only human left on earth, and it was mine to experience and enjoy. These moments always resulted in deep self-reflection and insight. Here Now commemorates one of those moments in a field near the Elk River around Pineville, Missouri.
