A Stitch in Time with Orange Flowers
This monoprint collage is inspired by my grandmother's quilting and gardening. Each flower has been hand painted and hand cut, then hand sewn to the paper to create the collage. I am favoring hand stitching my work. The time it takes to sew the pieces of paper together allows me the perspective and time to enjoy the process.
What is Monoprinting? Monoprinting is a fine art printing technique that uses a sheet of glass, or in my case a gelli plate, to transfer a unique image onto the sheet of paper. No two monoprints are alike, and the design created can only be used once ('mono' = single).
The art measures 10 inches by 8 inches. The acid-free mat is white and measures16 inches by 14 inches.
