On A Blade's Edge
Titled "On a Blade's Edge" this 9" (22.86 cm) x 12" (30.48 cm) original acrylic monoprint is a dramatic one. The colours, composition and line structure mimic to me a very decisive moment. It's like teetering on the edge of a blade, dancing almost. What decision will be made? What action will happen next?
The image goes right to the edge of the paper and it is signed in the lower right hand area. Done in professional artist Golden and Winsor & Newton acrylic paints.
The process of monotype printing is one in which paint/ink is put down on a plate (plexiglass, etc.), the image is constructed on that plate, paper is put down on top of it, pressure is applied to the back of the paper and then the paper is pulled off the plate. The image is then transferred onto the paper. This can be done once or over and over to construct an image. This results in ONE print only. Once this print is gone, it's gone. Done in lightfast and archival-quality top of the line professional Golden and Winsor Newton artist paints.
