Working on the Seam: Monica Angle

On View Friday, March 8–Sunday, June 30, 2019

Margaret L. Wendt Gallery   

Monica Angle describes Working on the Seam as, 

Works that combine techniques of painting and printmaking.  Using monoprint processes, I apply layers of color by transfering watermedia from a flat surface to paper, wood or canvas.  Building up the color by layer captures traces left by the water as it moves across the surface.  Even though I repeat a gesture, it will not appear the same way twice.  These gestures combine to suggest a space as pathways and clearings form within an image.  LIke the experience of recalling a place, the images generate a type of map, recording the channels upon which the image is based.
