Material Reinvention: New Approaches to Abstraction
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. European thread has been sewn onto the artwork symbolizing the handmade craftsmanship inherent in printmaking. 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.
Signature: Signed and numbered 1/1 on the mat, signed on the back
