Kathleen Markowitz : Monotypes & Mixed Media

I’m drawn to the sheer physicality of making a painting and the tactical
engagement of materials… I am drawn to the color blue.” K. Markowitz

Monotypes

Monotypes are one of a kind, unique prints. This work was made through applications of ink rolled and manipulated on the non absorbent surface of a Plexiglas plate. Damp paper was placed over the worked surface and with the help of a press, the impressions are pulled from onto the paper. Additional markings and sometimes patches of glued color amend the work after the paper has dried. This process allows me to address the formal concerns of both painting and drawing, and produces work with a remarkable transparent and “layered” quality that is not otherwise achieved.
