Ghost Image Redux

Here are 2 more pieces in the series of unique prints I’m making using the “ghost” image of previous monotype left on the plexi glass plate. I’ve included last week’s image to put the current two in context. My main medium here is, again, oil based etching inks, with oil paint brought in as more viscous and opaque passages are handled. In the case of “King of the Unnamed Wand 3”, I purposely applied paint and ink in heavier quantities in areas of the plate so that the pressure of the press- about 6000 lbs psi-pushed the medium into splayed “waves” across the image. This can be a wild, hit or miss proposition. Here, I initially was ambivalent about the results, but on further reflection I decided I liked the graphicly strange marks.
