Voices 2, Monotype
18 x 18

This monotype, “Voices 2”, is part of a group of works inspired by the blending of voices in Renaissance choral music. The idea arises out of the correspondence between musical harmony and color harmony, where elements cohere, while still maintaining their individual character.

The layering of the three primary colors creates the other hues of the spectrum in various combinations. Variations depend on density and transparency, and the forms express other aspects of music, such as rhythm, texture, and resonance.

The “recipe” part of the work includes the use of Hanco litho inks and Arches 88 paper, a paper with the maximum brilliance of white, to best reflect the intensity of the colors.
