Nanette Wallace’s monotypes feature an imaginative narrative that often fluctuate between elegant and uncomfortable. Her gestural figures are an intuitive and emotional response to the world around her, with an especially deep connection to water, light and nature. Nanette creates her monotypes by rolling a solid layer of ink onto a plexiglass plate, she then removes and adds ink using q-tips, a brayer and her finger covered in a cotton cloth. After she creates an image on the plate, she often obscures it by rolling a fine layer of ink back over top to see what spontaneous nuances develop. The image is then transferred onto a sheet of paper by pressing the plate and paper together using a printing press creating one singular original print.
