Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

River 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.

River depicts a figure on the banks of the Missouri River in Weston Bend State Park in Missouri.

It hangs in a frame I constructed. The frame is wood with plexiglass. The print is mounted to archival foam board, and appears to float within the frame.
