In 2013, I started exploring monotypes as a way to create many small images while retaining the things I love most about painting: blocking out shapes of lights and darks, establishing color fields, subtractive as well as additive image making. The process involves painting on a piece of plexi glass, placing a sheet of paper over the image and running the glass and paper through a press to transfer the image to the paper.
To my surprise, I discovered that some of the images looked great on plexi glass and I decided not to run them through the press. The smoothness of the glass allows the brushstrokes to remain visible. The paintings look quite opaque and rendered when placed against the wall, but when held up to the light they look more like thinly painted abstractions.
