My Mutant Lamp

scan0020Speaking of mutant lamps, Silverthorne’s piece in my previous blog entry reminded me of my print of a similar lamp. This is a monoprint I made in a workshop a few years ago. The process involved inking a plate (we used a piece of metal flashing) then drawing a design into it which removed some of the ink. I think I used a cotton swab and a stick. Then it was put on a printing press with damp thick paper on it and rolled through the press once. Voila! Very fun.

Doesn’t it look like it belongs to the guy in The Scream by Edvard Munch? It totally does!
