The Monotype Process

The monotype. A medium characterized by spontaneity, discovery... "Oh this is great." and improvisation. Monotypes are made by drawing or painting on a smooth surface and then transferring it to a sheet of paper using a press or another means of pressure. While European artists began experimenting with the process in the 1600's, it wasn't until 1880 that American artists began exploring the medium; and, over the past century, the monotype has been dramatically transformed.
