In a Triangular Mode, Monotype Woodcut with Collage
18 x 23.25

The black “key” plate I used for “In a Triangular Mode” is a woodcut. It was printed twice: first right side up and then upside down. It was printed on top of a multicolor ground composed of images I had pre-printed, then cut up, glued, and collaged into a pattern that pleased me. You could call these five or six steps, depending on how you slice and dice it. This is a unique print but part of a series comprised of “riffs” on this theme. I love jazz music, listen to it when I work and thought the title of the piece should have a jazzy feel. The collage and visual breakups contribute to this mood.
