I am drawn to monotype’s visual language, especially the openings that come from the unwilled and accidental nature of the process. The longer the field of activity can stay open for exploration and the more ways that a plate can be printed, the better. I appreciate how qualities of touch and presence are conveyed in drawings and prints. I have been exploring how to see vulnerability and resilience; some of these prints are worn through, and appear to be fragile but the fibers are incredibly strong in these printmaking papers. I wanted to see the possibilities of physically breaking through to either the back of the image of the print or see how several printed layers physically unfold. It’s all delicate and fleeting, here and gone, lost and fragile and more structured and complex that I could plan for or imagine.
