Printmaking

20151010_134116-copy-copy-2I have spent a number of years now, exploring the notion of making time visible. I have recently found creating monotypes a suitable language for this exploration. There is immediacy with the process, which, whilst having a skeleton of an image in mind demands an intuitive approach. I like the sense of atmosphere that can be created and how the ink of the monotype records every touch, mark and texture, developing its own vocabulary and language. Monotypes are for me, a wonderful combination of printmaking, painting and drawing.
