RED RIVER BEND
I want my work to communicate a delicate balance between color and movement. My intent is to entice the viewer to look closer and be transported into a rhythmic assemblage of unexpected shapes.
My monoprints are created using collagraph plates and assorted materials. These collagraph plates are constructed of various materials which could include combinations modeling paste, string, palm hair, fabric, paper, wallpaper, wood, gloss medium and gel medium. I use these plates as a background or to transfer images and textures to cut shapes of paper. I combine them with the different inked materials. These are arranged and printed in multiple layers on 100% cotton handmade archival paper. The resulting original image is the only one of its kind and cannot be reproduced.
