Just the Facts: (of the Natural History Monoprint Series)
Image size=12″x 18″. Framed 24″x 30″. Printed on Rives BFK white archival paper. Edition 1/1. To begin, 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.

Where to begin today? Maybe with our American Colonial past. The Constitution?

My belief is that our Founding Fathers, not being able to look into the future, posited gun ownership as a reasonable right. Settlers shot game for food. They used weapons to protect their families from massacres-not to start them.

Society changes slowly. People’s minds even more slowly. And then we hit a point where we question what changes will make us stronger.

You can’t legislate mental sanity, religious fanaticism or terrorism. We can never be fully safe.

My heart is with Orlando.

Here’s the full thesis/premise. I was happily making more and more of these monoprints. It occurred to me that I could make both true and false statements in this series. Let the viewer decide.
And now for the eureka moment. The INTERNET! Pause. Soak that up.
Meant to be a tool that encompasses all knowledge. As did Pliny’s encyclopedia.
Doesn’t. Didn’t. Never will.
But it gives me universal range. I can make a print about anything that strikes my fancy. Which is what I’ve been doing.

Pliny was an historian in Ancient Rome, around the time of the Pompeii disaster. ( will discuss that later!).
His encyclopedia was created from fact, best guesses, rumor, unverified accounts and utter garbage. All taken at face value as the truth. Feel you are getting closer to my premise?
I decided that I would do the same, with a conscious twist.
More on that tomorrow. Will we find our heroine tied to the train tracks? Will she finally tell you the total concept? Yes, I promise!Swoon
