Perpetual I and II

A quick stop off at the ‘printers’. I’ve used this monoprint technique a few times now, and I like the blend of intent and surprise it brings. One of the nice things about this method is that it produces two similar images. Getting the positioning and quantities of paint right on the first sheet of paper is a matter of trial and error, then you press the two sheets together and pull them apart.

The tension in the paint as the sheets of paper separate creates an interesting network of ‘veins’, you can see them more clearly in this (poorly lit) close up photo. I enjoy experimenting with this basic method of printing, more to follow.
