This is a reproduction of a hand pulled monotype print.
This guy looks great in a child's room or an office. The prints come in many sizes and they are shipped ready to hang! No Frame Needed
Great gift for the optometrist in your life.
This canvas print is sure to make a statement in any space. It's hand-stretched on a poly-cotton blend canvas with a matte finish coating.
• 20.5 mil-thick poly-cotton blend canvas
• Hand-glued solid wood stretcher bars
• Matte finish coating
The original was the first of my series of animals in glasses. The original was Akua inks printed on Stonehenge paper.
My current body of work is made up of hand pulled monotype prints. I use traditional monotype plates and gelatin plates. The gelatin prints are created by laying out ink on a large gelatin plate. I melt and pour my own gelatin plates. Images are composed of inks, foliage and hand cut masks. The beauty of gelatin printing is that you get something different from every print. The foliage pressed into the ink leaves an amazingly detailed pattern on the final image. There is a spontaneity in the medium that can not be reproduced with other processes.
Monotype is a technique that generally yields only one good impression from each prepared plate. Monotypes are prized because of their unique textural qualities. Mine are made by drawing on glass or a plate with printer’s ink. Then the drawing is pressed by hand onto a sheet of absorbent paper. The pigment remaining on the plate is usually insufficient to make another print unless the original design is reinforced. All prints will invariably differ from the first one, because variations in repainting and printing are inevitable.
Since each is unique and hand executed, monotypes cannot be considered a technique of multiple replication. But, because they are prints on paper, they are usually classed with printmaking media.
