Stephanie Cramer, “Head”, monotype

January 8, 2008 – February 17, 2008

Stephanie Cramer will be exhibiting her monotypes along side several of her large vibrant paintings at the Gallery at Zea Mays Printmaking, Florence, MA. Zea Mays gives Cramer a place to work communally with other artists. “Normally the process of painting is isolated, Zea Mays gives me the opportunity to work in the presence of other artists. “My preference is monotype, the most closely related to the process of painting, often called the painter’s printmaking process.

“Center stage in my art is the figure- an object in motion, as if the figure is caught, just for an instant, a glimpse, a snapshot before the gesture is complete. I’m not in search of exact representation. I’m intent rather on provoking a sense of tension or intensity. These plus color bring the emotion to the print.”
