The last few years I have been exploring the world of monotypes and have gone down some interesting paths. I find the medium is a really good place for me to play with color and shape. Throughout my career, I keep coming back to the human figure over and over again. The figures in these prints made from drawings that I did last week in a session with a live model.
I used six 6″ x 8″ plates on these monotypes. They provide me with natural divisions through which I can adjust color, value and texture in a way that I can control very specifically and have it feel comfortably random. The multiple plates also divide up the picture plane in a way that I find pleasing in the same way I have been dividing the trees up in my oil paintings on canvas.
