The Art Vault: Old monoprints

I just love looking at old pieces now and then. These little beauties are probably from 2000 or 2001 at the latest. Simple monoprints using an inked plexiglass plate, I created the different shapes and patterns on them by using the ink roller itself. In the print above, I also tried taking a swatch of satin from an old bridesmaid gown of mine and running it under the press with the plate, creating the above pattern on the paper. I liked how it worked and went on to use the method in another monoprint, Achyra. Once I find some record of that one (if I do) I’ll show you. It left me at last year’s Hand Prints.
