Printmaking

COULEUR SERIES 004, Monoprint, 18×24

The Couleur Series is made with solar-etched copper plates. The solar part is using the sun instead of acid to etch the image. Much healthier for me and the environment.

Next I ink the etched matrix. And then with separate ink colors I freely “paint” on the plate the remainder of the image.

For example, Couleur Series 004 is multiple hues of red inks painted over a violet inked matrix. I purposely leave spatters and strokes as the mark of my hand.

To create the print titled “Vortex” I print my carborundum image several times in different hues of blue, gray and black. I cut and tear up the prints. Then reassemble them atop one another and collage them to produce a swirling motion, a vortex.
