Shipping of this artwork within the Continental US (including insurance) is an additional $50. Please contact Artspace Warehouse for shipping quotes to other destinations worldwide.
Deborah Lynn Irmas is interested in both abstract and figurative forms and how they interact. These forms sometimes develop an intricate and complicated relationship. Her process is monotype, a type of printmaking made by painting on a smooth surface, glass or copper plate. Monotyping is a unique process in that every print is hand pulled and one of a kind. The artwork is printed with Charbonnel French Inks on Stonehenge Archival 100% cotton printmaking paper. This one-of-a-kind artwork comes in a white frame with white mat bearing the signature of the artist and number 1/1. She has also signed the reverse of the monotype.
Deborah was very fortunate to grow up with a mother who was a talented artist. Her mother encouraged her to explore art at a young age. In the late 70’s Deborah Lynn Irmas studied Fine Art at UCLA. Upon graduating from UCLA she became interested in Graphic Arts and started her own Graphic Design Firm. In the mid-90’s Deborah studied Textile Design and earned a 2-year extension degree at UCLA. For 10 years she worked as a graphic artist. Eventually, Deborah went back to her roots as a fine artist and has been printmaking and painting since 2005. Printmaking’s graphic elements are what fascinate her.
This artwork is framed in a black frame and ready to hang. A certificate of authenticity is included.
