Collagraphs, generally speaking, are a type of monoprint pulled from collaged plates. Mine, as seen on this site, utilize illustration board to provide a support base for the collage. Gesso protects the plate from the printing ink, and seals in the various media used for the collage, which can include paper, tissue paper, sawdust, or fabric. Various textured acrylic media are applied to the plate to create a diversity of tone and value on the prints. Deep, intriguing colors—created by a multiple-drop process that creates layers of color—enhance the unique textures produced by the collaged plate. The prints that result from this collection of processes are beautiful and full of transparent light and color. The subjects of these prints take advantage of these aesthetic qualities to explore the intersection between the abstract and the representative.
