Monoprinting is a form of printmaking that has images or lines that can only be made once, unlike most printmaking, where there are multiple originals. There are many techniques of monoprinting. There are a number of standard printmaking techniques which can be used to make monoprints. I have, for all of the above pieces used a plexi-sheet with oil paints and various other painting techniques. My work is then transferred to an acid-free, top quality paper (Arches, Strathmore +) and put through a printing press. Often I will break with traditional methods producing images as shown in the above montage.
Most of the works range in size from 12 x`s 18 - 35 x`s 71cm.
To follow the progress of my compilation of an Àrtist Book` feel free to view my Blog at Inkteraction.
I have kept it simple as will reflect in the finished piece of which only fittingly there will be only one unique Edition.
Artists' books are works of art realized in the form of a book. They are often published in small editions, though sometimes they are produced as one-of-a-kind objects referred to as "uniques".Artists' books have employed a wide range of forms, including scrolls, fold-outs, concertinas or loose items contained in a box as well as bound printed sheet. Artists have been active in printing and book production for centuries, but the artist's book is primarily a late 20th century form.
