galleryjuana abstract monoprint art
Abstract VI, June 2018

Last month I purchased a gelliplate and have been monoprinting for the past several weeks. Previoiusly I had been using acrylic paint on plexiglass for my monoprinting.

The advantage to the gelliplate is that the acrylic paint stays wet longer. I can use thinner or thicker layers of paint or even mix the paints directly on the plate.

Although most of the completed  works in the last 4 weeks have been abstracts, I completed a few figure drawings as well. I added some monoprint layers to the sumi ink figure line drawing above. I like how there is still a bit of randomness and spontaneity to the layers of color.

Start snow, everyday, becoming, in your actions, your regular actions,
what you would like to become in the bigger scheme of things.

sumi and walnut ink, line drawing, a couple in love

Abstract Couple I, May 2018

At the beginning of May I completed this line drawing with sumi and walnut inks of a couple in love.  
As I lay down either ink, each one is drawn to the other.

It reminds me of Pablo Neruda's Sonnet XVII.  Below is an excerpt:

I love you without knowing how,
or when, or from where,
I love you simply,
without problems or pride.
I love you in this way
because I don't know
any other way of loving but this,
in which
there is no I or you,
so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand,
so intimate that when I fall asleep
it is your eyes that close.
