Green Tank Top: 1990


Green Tank Top: 1990, originally uploaded by Julia Kay.

Monoprint.
18 X 24 inches.
~ 3 hours from inking the plate to cleanup.

I was looking for all my images of David Friedheim for the Portrait Party, and I found another whole set of scans of images of me that I had forgotten about - LOL!

These were all monoprints, some with chine cole.

A monoprint is when you paint on a hard surface, such as plexiglass, then run it through a press to transfer the paint/ink to a piece of paper and make a print. You only get one print - hence mono. However, there is usually a ghost image left on the plate, so you can paint over it again and get a pretty similar or related image. So you can see some of these are in a series.

At this time I actually had quite long hair but pulled it back and tied it up all the time. In that sense, it wasn't such a change when I cut it.

Chine cole is when you lay different papers down on top of each other before running it through the press. It's a kind of print/collage process.

Since you are painting on a smooth surface, you can roll out the ink and then wipe it away with your fingers, as I did here. This was printed on black paper.
