Monoprint w/ Ink Transfer

Paper Size : 26.5" x 22.5"
Image Size 16" x 20"

hand pulled on white BFK Rives Printmaking Paper
Edition : Unique Impression

Part of the print album 'PlayMat'

I love re-using the same printmaking plate over and over for various additions to various prints.
They develop a somewhat archeological feel, carry a history and an atmosphere of things gone by and lives lived. These ghosts of ghosts are often too good to pass up and just wipe away.

This piece carries the memory of things passed during my recent early spring printing runs.
An ethereal, worn off, faded away feel of colors reminiscent of brighter bolder days filled with sunshine. Life begetting new life - spring.
The central shape was cut from a vinyl placemat and recalls a seed pod in this setting, holding text of a new story to be written. Lines engraved in ink waiting for insects to follow their rhythm.
Ink splotches blotted turned into fragile flowers following the breeze.
Is that a blue hummingbird hovering?
Awaiting brighter times.
