A Brief Essay on How and Why to Make Monotypes

July 22, 2016

Monotypes, though simple, are very process-oriented and often defeat results-oriented art making. Change is built in to the creative process, and often, until change is addressed, satisfying prints don’t happen. We’ve let the word “print” become degraded and we often reflexively see them as a way of producing imitation paintings. The medium especially in recent […]

Can I Take My Books to Heaven?

January 19, 2015

I’ve spent the last few weeks either working long hours at my temp job at DU, or on the couch reading under a blanket in the frigid, dark days. I got a lot of reading done, so I’m posting more mini-reviews today. Now it’s getting noticeably brighter, the job is done, and I’m getting back into a […]

Team of Rivals

October 6, 2014

I’m posting this pic of a collaboration I did with ceramic artist Donna Schnitzer for a show at Republic Plaza called Interplay. It was designed to hightlight the professional artist/ mentor-to- student relationships the Art Students League of Denver wants to encourage. In this case, Donna is a long time, very experienced professional ceramic artist herself […]

Mellow Yellow

September 26, 2013

Color reappeared in my new work in a large way. I had put increased attention on color in my summer evening monotype class, because I realized that most people at that level of experience anyway, can use a little background in color theory. Most artists at that level don’t have an intellectual program for color. They […]
