Cloud and Trigram 9x12 monotype sold
WHA! THIS IS A MONOTYPE SHOWING WHAT YOU MIGHT EXPECT TO SEE ON MY OTHER BLOG.....Intuitiveprintmaking (see above). Please join me there for a real change of pace
Unlike my more recent monoprints, this was done on a plexiglass plate. Having no "matrix" or engraved plate that would produce a continuous quality or character through a print series, this is properly called a monotype. (aficionados please comment here!)
A trigram is a Chinese symbol made up of three lines, either broken (yin) or unbroken (yang). The second (from the bottom ) is a yin line The third line here is yet ambiguous and appears to be in the process of change. The eye shape might suggest consciousness, the circle motives suggests both unity and separateness, Movement is indicated by the cloudy shapes above.... I could go on but I'm getting that uncomfortable feeling you get in most Art History classes. This is one of my favorite attempts at following shapes and color toward an idea. You can see; I'm still having fun with it.
