First lines no.3 Woodblock Monoprint
Woodblock monoprint on paper, matted in 11×14 acid-free white mat with 8×10 opening.
The First Lines Series is a collection of monoprints created from a library of woodblock and etching plates. The title of the series developed from the first few prints, as I was created them they felt like simple sentences that began a longer narrative. They felt like the first line of a book. Each print is different in it’s overlapping and combining of plates, as well as it’s colors and ink density. I love watching how the plates interact with one another and change as they are paired with different plates in different colors.
Each print is unique, printed on acid free Arches printmaking paper in a shade of white. Prints are matted and backed and shipped in a protective plastic sleeve. Mattes are 11×14 with 8×10 inch opening. Actual printed area varies from print to print. While no two prints are alike, they can be similar to one another.
*Please note the mats on all prints are solid white, any variation on your screen is from lighting and trying to take a white-on-white photo without going crazy*
