MONADE IN THE MORNING
A monad full of dew and new ink, I had returned to my studio the day before and wanted to try a different, non-figurative graphic work. I cut out tools in thick paper, to spread the ink without a brush, without hands, a form between the delicate fan and the efficient trowel.
The tool-paper becomes impregnated with ink and unravels as I gesture, traces begin to populate the monad.
I added drops of distilled water to the exposure, which marked a very soft blue gradation, the entrance of the monad, on the top left.
The monad is dense, with intense blues and little emptiness inside.
This cyanography is the first monad, which appeared on a beautiful morning in April 2020.
