A Monotype demonstration will be held on Saturday, Nov 4th, 10:00 to 2:00 pm at the SAA Gallery, 130 Water St., Exeter, NH.
What is a Monotype?
Monotype is an intriguing hybrid among printing techniques. It is neither a print nor a painting, but a unique combination of both. The method is named because it is one image (mono), painted or drawn with printer’s ink directly on a plate and then transferred to paper. The printing of an image from a clean, un-worked surface results in a quality that is open and free which easily allows innovation. The monotype is a singular image and cannot be replicated.
Annick’s interest in monotype comes from a love of texture. She achieves depth, color and texture using different ink viscosities painted on a Plexiglas plate which is then passed through an etching press. Annick also likes to use the subtractive method. Images are created in a dark field by lifting the medium from the plate before passing it through the press.
