Untitled, Oil Monoprint
21 x 21
I am etcher, serigrapher and painter, but in the last 20 years I am doing monoprints as my way of expression. For me monoprinting provides the opportunity to express myself in two different languages: The Graphic voice and the voice of the Painting.
For me using these two ways of expression, I produce an image superior to the two techniques separately. This media offers me the freedom and freshness that neither Painting and Printmaking by themselves can do it.
I am very accomplished with this technique and have won prizes in top-ranking international prints competitons in Europe, Asia, United States and the Caribbean. My tools are: A Charles Brand Press, oil, Acrylic plate, and Rives BFK Paper 250 grams acid free. I work with rolls, rags, combs, pencils, brushes and any kind of instrument which can build up a good texture…even my hands.
