A study in shades of grey, this original artwork is inspired by an icy winter and Japanese simplicity.
Working with a limited palette
In an age where more is more, I tend to enjoy creating artwork that is simple, quiet and calming. This diptych was an exercise in working with a very limited palette: white, grey, black. For me, it conjures up a wintry feeling… I can imagine looking through layers of ice when I look at this piece.
Using my very thin monotype prints, I built up layer upon layer, sometimes partially obscuring what I originally intended. I find that my work is a process of exploration, where the end result is partly planned, partly happenstance.
I titled this diptych “Korogaru (Languish)”. It combines monotype printing, collage and stitching, and is mounted on a wood panel base. The overall piece is 20″ x 48″ x 1.5″ and is available for $2,100.
