MONOPRINT 2016.

Fields of uneven colour fight to re-define the space into a new found balance of shapes and
lines. They flow in each other, dig sharp ruptures, drop dynamic lines and thick drops of
pigment on the peacefull stilness of the sheet of paper.

Print is by definition the mass production of the same graphic concept, made by the few.
Although the aim is to diffuse a message, it is the result of the decision a close circuit of
people

Monoprint is the more democratic type of print as it does not require any special machinery or
expensive ink. It si not for the few but is open to everyone who wants to have a go; just two
sheets of paper and any pigment would do. Pressing by hand leaves a record of the human
gesture and makes monoprint a less automatic process with countless possibiliies compared
to the exhaustion of the etched plate and the smoothing of the barbs.

Monoprint is more akin to the diffuse human erros in life than the clearcut sharpness of
ecthing and other types of print. I can see these works paving the way to larger size in new
projects.
