Theme: Putting the C’s in Season; AR302 Printmaking, SEMO; Monotype and pochoir; 16″x12″; 2020
The assignment was to create a suite of prints around the theme using reduction, paint, direct trace, and pochoir techniques in each impression. Every time a new layer of ink was added to an impression, the remaining ink on the matrix was transferred to the “ghost” prints seen below. The ghost provides an example to students of how a denser image can create a more engaging product, while also acting as a physical record of the entire project. Nora chose to relate how a preexisting condition during the COVID 19 pandemic exacerbated her anxiety.
