These large-scale monotypes are explorations of the material quality of lithographic ink, which has been dissolved and distressed on a surface and then run through the high pressure of the etching press to set the result in paper. Repeated layering of this process creates an horizon-less landscape of marks that evokes images of the natural processes of erosion, decay, weathering and the aerial views of natural phenomena that inspired the series. My act of ‘weathering’ or disrupting the ink creates marks that reveal the organic nature of the lithographic ink pigment. The printing press serves as a mechanism of preservation, embedding the results in paper for posterity. My practice is centred on my process of production and how my act as artist can resonate with larger natural forces of creation and destruction.
