Master Printer Series: Monotype
How did Degas or Helen Frankenthaler make monotypes? Why do contemporary artists like Dana Schutz, Elizabeth Peyton, and Peter Doig all use monotype today to liberate their work? With landscape, the figure, abstraction, or photographic sources, the monotype allows you to express your own voice with immediacy. During the week, we will explore traditional techniques, and ways to apply them to contemporary needs. We will also experiment with materials – fabric, paper, found objects, plants, etc.– and ways of printing with and without a press that can be used to make unique images.
