Monoprint

Chris Townsend:

The monoprint is not a means of generating serial imagery but rather a strategy of distantiation, of removing a certain immediacy and directness of gesture which might characterize the drawing.

 

There is, therefore, both a distance between the apparent immediacy of expression that the work conveys, and the necessary preparation contingent on the medium that carries it.
