Now that the first in the series of “The Experience of Colour” are moving forward well I have decided to explore the possibility of working with the same masks and materials but using the same processes as in The Possibility of Black series. Using a mixed black to create the pop of colour.
This short series of magenta prints are produced on the off set proofing press bed plate and then layered up onto the paper which stays on the receiving bed.
I have used the same method, or very similar, to printing on the Gelli plate creating depth and texture by working into a layer of magenta and subtracting ink through a mask with a very soft wall papering roller which literally sucks the ink off the plate. Using a slightly dirty (black) roller or by adding black via transfer has added an interesting set of marks.
These Monotype prints have now been reworked as part of My dreaming Sheep Series.
