Using a very reduced colour palette I’m currently starting a range of monoprints based on lines and shapes – in this case, circles. I’ve had quite a long time away from my core interests of linear connections, boxes, containment and the like and am enjoying returning to puddling around with inks in a new exploration of these themes.
Blue isn’t normally prominent in my work but for this project I’m embracing black, ultramarine and cerulean blue.
This first batch are what I call the ‘negatives’. They are the first pull when threads have been laid as resists on the print plate. They are pretty useless as is but some will be used as a base to overprint later.
