Intaglio Monoprint Series

This series of print/drawings is another hybrid form that I like working with.  I am not really interested in making multiple prints (much to the dismay, I'm sure, of printmaking purists!) but creating one of a kind images.  The process involves creating a plate from which to run the intaglio print.  Each print comes out differently based on the color and amount of ink I apply to the plate and how much pressure I dial in on the press. After the prints are dry I go back in with graphite and "pull out" images that appear to me.  I like that the end result is one where each individual print is similar to the others but distinctively different from them at the same time.
