DESCRIPTION: Posters, Prints, & Multiples, Unframed, Etching ink on paper

ARTIST STATEMENT: Monotype printmaking challenges me into a game of peek-a-boo with negative space. The paper, its own color and texture revealed, matters. I use the ink as a tonic, sometimes calm/ neutral, or boldly in front, as a gatekeeper. With minimal inflection or stroke, violet is in the eye's path. inviting one into the space beyond. From an ongoing series of monotypes, Springtime focuses on finding specific colors within the limits of Rose, or Violet.
