Monotype Prints

Produced by applying oil based ink onto an aluminium plate then passing it through a press to transfer onto damp paper.

I produced a series of mono-types last week, I feel that I want to experiment more with different media to help me develop my sketchbook work in new directions. I really enjoy working with mono-print and monotype, the processes provide a freedom and looseness that excites me. The rapidity of production is perfect for my spontaneous approach.

The imagery in these prints was inspired by visiting the River Humber at sunset, watching the shimmering orange lights appear on the south bank as the light fades.

About Annemarie Tickle

I am a Lecturer in Textiles at Hull School of Art and Design. As a visual artist I am interested in atmospheric conditions and events and how the scale of nature makes mans mark on the landscape look insignificant. I enjoy the act of doing and getting my hands dirty so my practice is intensly process led. I use a wide range of media but am particular interested in dying techniques.

    These are great. I’ve not tried Mono-types but it sounds fun x

    • Thank you Alice, you should try it out, just like mono printing on glass but you get much stronger, more satisfying results. I am still following your blog and hope that your latest show is going succesfully.
