These experimental and unique (one-off) mono prints were created during print runs of original limited editions.
In the moment of precision and technical process of screen printing, I often feel a need to bend and break the rules and invite a little chaos into the work flow.
As I print with less and less ink in the flood until I almost run out of the black pigment, I find the freedom of powerful new movements. By letting in the moment of unknown and accidental, I discover different visual expressions and frequencies of energy.
I call this the process of ‘bleaching’. Although the term ‘bleaching’ is often referred to the process of corals expelling algae and becoming lifeless, I use it in the sense of rapid change and rebirth.
The image itself is loosing its original qualities as the pigment gradually disappears. In spite of being pigment-less, the image is anything but life-less, in fact, it gains new level of existence and expression.
