Monoprint on tracing paper. I applied oil paint to a pallet, speading it out into a very thin layer with a glue spatula (this has left fine lines down the print, creating a distortion which I like). I then laid the tracing paper gently on top of the layer of ink and used a photo to trace the outline of the image onto the back of the tracing paper, using a pencil with the lead retracted. Where I pressed with the pencil, the ink transferred onto the paper. I didn’t know what the resulting image would look like until I lifted the tissue paper off the ink.
I think that this does have visual characteristics that suggest memory – the fuzziness, transparency and lack of clarity. I plan to do more, using different types of paper, and perhaps layering some of these images.
