Monotypes
Monotypes are one-of-a-kind prints. In this instance they are created by applying inks directly onto a blank, smooth gel plate. The inks are manipulated through a variety of processes. Sometimes beach found items are laid on the plate, alone or alongside hand cut stencils, sometimes used in combination with collagraph and lino plates. Often a print is the result of many lifts and layers of colour, shape and texture become overlaid. It is a high energy process and always rewarding. The results are revelatory, unique and unrepeatable. Some of the prints here are embellished by hand with ink and/or graphite. Some began life as a monotype and grew into collages. See individual image descriptions for details.
