Nancy Graves, Untitled, from the The Pilchuck Series, monotype on Rives BFK white paper with watercolor, 30 X 22 inches.
“While an artist-in-residence at the Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, Washington, Graves completed this series of monotypes in which she used embossing to introduce organic form directly into her prints. Working with master printer Cate Brigden, the artist selected a variety of plants from the grounds of the school, including a large number of flowers and berries, and placed them on a glass plate, which she then ran through an etching press. The pressure accentuated the subtlety and variety of the organic forms and extracted their natural colors. Graves added watercolor to certain works in the series after printing to balance the random stains of natural color.”
