Monoprints

I’ve been working on this body of work all week, to the exclusion of most else. When I close my eyes I can see dark brushstrokes and delicate silhouetted plant forms; balanced patterns of light and shade.  I started out tight and restrained.

After a week, the movements of my bamboo stick over inked butter paper are free-form, expansive, relaxed.  The intense contrast evokes light.

Seeing these images is seeing my mind laid out in its hidden frameworks before me.  feel joy when I look at them all; that my mind has the capacity to generate this beauty and sense of coherence.  Is it coherent? It is to me.  So fascinating – a secret language to explain myself to myself.
