Scape 1, Monotype and Pen and Ink
18 x 26

Monoprint is a single print pulled off a Plexiglas plate. To make this particular monoprint I first cut shapes out of drafting film (Mylar). Each shape was inked black and a layer of various fabrics was positioned on the wet ink. The mylar and fabric were sent through the press. The fabric was removed, leaving a pattern on the inked shapes. These pieces were repositioned on a Plexiglas plate and printed on cream BFK paper. Small details were added by hand with a pen.
