Year Created 2022

I have currently been producing a body of work consisting of large oil paintings and time-consuming sculptures, so making this series of monotypes was a welcome relief for me. I find the process exciting as I feel less in control of the outcome of each piece and there is a bit of a mystery as to how the colours and textures on the plate will relate to the paper. This makes the process feel less precious, giving me the space to be a bit more experimental with colour and form. I love the theatrical reveal of the paper being peeled away from the plate after coming off the press and then watching as the colours change and finally settle on the drying print. The resulting image is a record of an unwound process of making a picture and then letting it go.
