The Carbonation Collection: Monoprint Collages
These works are a combination of collagraph, linocut and silkscreen prints. Each print is original, hand cut, and collages together using chine-collé techniques.
Plates were created as drawings of the Artisanal series of sculptures and translated into various forms of types of printmaking plates. The term “Carbonation” in their title hits at this origin as the sculptures are largely made from repurposed craft beer cas. It also refers to the carbonization of the environment.
“Collection refers to the work as a series, but also their fabric inspirations. Each is titled after a season of the year that the fashion industry often uses to describe their collections and encourage consumerism.
The work has an abstracted botanical, almost vintage fabric appearance and this is a commentary on the way we think and describe seasons with Climate Change: where we associate certain colors with temperature and seasons that are not what they used to be.
2021, Linocut, collagraph, screen print collage. 30 x 22 inches. Includes signed authentication paperwork.
