Artist's Description

This is a monotype print I created in the Spring of 2008 with red, yellow, brown and black ink. Tools used to spread the ink on the plate included three rollers, Q-tips and macrame cord.

I trust my emotions, instinct and sense of aesthetics when creating abstract art. I choose colors according to my mood and if I feel they work together. The decision to roll a color where on the plate is made on the spot with an eye for how it works overall. The Q-Tips acquired more thought and were used to remove ink on the outside of a patch of color or to create a line based on no clues from the ink.

This print was made in stages. Red, yellow and black ink was rolled on a plate, then mineral spirits were sprinkled along the top and allowed to drip down. This was left to dry overnight, then Q-tips were used to create the forms in the background on the left. The plate was rolled through a press, but ink remained on the plate. I used macrame cord covered in ink and wrapped around a roller to add the foreground lines, then the print was complete and taken through the press again.
