Artwork description:

This painting/ monotype explores a painting by El Greco. I spent six months travelling around Spain in 2014 on an art pilgrimage and residency - during this time I spent a lot of time exploring the work of El Greco, visiting his town of residency Toledo.

These monotype paintings are exploring a variety of paintings by those I enjoy re-seeing, exploring the artist's ways of working and producing their paintings from the past, re-exploring their techniques in colour, form and composition.

This painting/ monoprint is one of several images investigating the Lady in a Fur Wrap by El Greco, applying the techniques of painting the image in Waterbased printing inks and then pressing through a printing press onto Rosapina Fabriano paper, experimenting way of pressing the image either directly onto a dry surface and onto damp or wet paper surfaces to form entropic states of image making.

These reveal accidental and chance elements into the work that correspond to thoughts and current events happening during their making, whilst referring back to the history of art and the history of painting and printing in the age of the illusionistic digital realisation of reality aka the phantasmagorical age.

Materials used:

Waterbased Printing Ink on Rosapina Fabriano
