Monoprint project with Gary Justis is underway

By | Gary Justis, Monotypes | No Comments

Manneken Press is buzzing with activity this month as Gary Justis works on a group of new monoprints.

In 2011 Gary Justis created a series of monoprints based on chandelier images, and this new group of monoprints continues in the same vein, utilizing stainless steel plates cut into chandelier profiles.  Justis was able to “draw” the images with a plasma torch. The distinctive edge left by the plasma torch on the metal creates a unique surface which comes into play in interesting ways during the printing process.

Ink is applied to the chandelier form which is printed on paper. In some cases the sheet has a ground previously printed from a sheet of plywood.  Each print is treated as a unique work, and the chandelier form can be re-inked and printed over a previously printed image several times.

Work on this project will continue through March, 2016, and the prints will be released shortly thereafter.
