Martinizing

Good question!  My intention was to blog about Pliny, the Natural History mono print series, with engaging facts and fiction. ( more about that later).

Above artwork is my painting: ” Martinizing”.  Acrylic. Yep, I can paint, too.

Anyway, I have been totally embroiled, enmeshed and entangled with continuing medical issues and financial difficulties. Takes up so much time and energy.  However, I will not slip over to the dark side in this blog!

Today’s NH: “Alexander Hamilton”.  To those of you new to my premise, your 1st question should be, True or False?.

This mono print was made by printing 2 copper aquatint plates in two different colors of oil ink to create the background stripes. The middle panel depicts the history of religion in icon form-a soft ground etching. The upper right corner is a chine collé with a line etching of a brain, overprinted with an American flag lino, printed on tulle. Real $10 bill. Image size is 12 x 18 inches, on 24 x 30 Rives B.F.K.  A nice, sturdy paper that can take multiple printing techniques, wet or dry. Following so far? Please feel free to ask about these printmaking terms.

“Isn’t life strange”… I think that is enough for today. Please share this blog.

Just a few sentences and a picture. Most days. Artwork. Humor. Okay, some politics and social commentary. Would you sign up/follow my blog? Today’s monoprint from my Natural History series is “NH: Polar Bear” True or false? We’ll discuss Pliny the Elder later.

Yesterday’s print, “NH Bribery”, was true. HUH!

Aquatint etching,linocut, trace transfer monotype. Monoprint. Edition 1/1. For sale! Each print background consists of 2, differently colored, inked, aquatinted copper plates printed over each other. This produces the variegated stripes.
Then I employ a variety of printing techniques: linocuts, collograph, etchings, monotyping, chine colle, etc., to create the subject. I design all the fonts by hand.

I don’t find treason laughable. Or bribery. They are among the most serious threats to America. Responsibility and the law must address these foul grievances. Today’s print is several years old. Substitute U.S.A. and Russia for Switzerland? Except, and accept that this is not going to happen soon. Constant vigilance.

Yesterday’s monotype, “Natural History: Bill of Rights”, was true. View more from this series on my website: http://www.hladikvoss.com

You may remember the Bill of Rights?  Fondly??? Today’s monoprint is from my “Natural History” series of over 100 one-of-a-kind artworks.In the wake of the “Fake News” debacle, I am posting prints from this series. Are the statements true or false? ( last post was oddly, true!). Follow the blog to get the true answers. Art is never the wrong answer.

Little did I realize, when I began this series of etchings, that real politics would become part of my artwork. Fake News???? I am posting one of the over 100 monotype etchings: Natural History:Alexander Hamilton, today. True or False? I will answer this in my next blog. Censorship is the antithesis of art. I believe in the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and all the hard fought laws that American citizens gave their lives to defend.

Original premise: Pliny the Elder (who died in the Vesuvius explosion ) tried to collect a book of all knowledge-the first encyclopedia – and did he get a lot wrong! But even so, much of it still believed today.

NH:BriberyOddly, this fits in well with the other topical/personal blog of today-Blogging for Dollars- A Perfidious Tale of Health Care in America.

This is an earlier monoprint, but the subject matter is as old as time.  I used several different linocut plates and the trace transfer technique to add the hand-drawn fonts. The background is comprised of 2 copper aquatinted striped plates. The plates are inked in 2 different colors-when printed on top of each other, the give a gradation in color. The plates are printed when the paper is wet. ( If not, you could never register-match up the edges).  The linos are printed in a second  session, after the paper has been dried under blotters. The words are printed in a third session. The image size is 12″ x 18″. Printed on Rives B.F.K. 24 x 30. Edition of one-it’s a monoprint.

More hints to the series? Eh? Believe it or not? So much information on the internet-just like old Pliny the Elder?
