This is one of several monotypes I created, based on a black-and-white painting of two pots I did many years ago. A monotype is a impression on paper painted with a brush on a plate or other flat surface. I used spray bottles of turpenoid, printing ink, toothbrushes, q-tips and old brushes to create the image on a zinc plate. I then ran the plate through a printing press, printing the image on Rives BFK paper. My fascination with the organic, unexpected forms that result from the printmaking process inspired me to create this image.
This print can be purchased without the frame.
