My latest Speedrun video featuring my Custom Monoprint Demonstration. Thank you for viewing.
Printing...printing...printing...the process of printmaking is a physical one that allows the artist to get fully involved and enjoy the "intimacy" of working with this process.
and making contact with the material is an important facet to making
both ceramics and prints, which is why I love both of these forms of
art. In many ways ceramics and printmaking are intrinsically linked by their "intimate process".
Layering ink directly onto the surface of pvc foam
creates a bright and highly pigmented surface that reflects the
viewers' gaze (although a bit blurry) back
at his/herself, something that intrigues me and that I love.
The amazing versatility of using the pvc
foam plates as a printing template as well as for sculpture lends
itself to infinite possibilities. Repetition, Shape, Size/Scale, color, and
even light become avenues for breeding new ideas or stirring old ones
that we love.
Once the layering of ink is complete, it is
time to let the work dry. The drying period for these works can take
upwards of one to two months depending on the layering of ink and the
time of year/humidity, etc.
These pvc wall-hanging
pieces are breeding new ideas for new projects. These projects
include using porcelain and black clay to make wall-hanging pieces
implementing my main material and artistic love...CERAMICS. :)
