Lobster Anyone?

In June, "Lobster" was accepted into the “National Juried Competition: Works on Paper 2019” exhibit at the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences. For this 21st national competition, Louis Marchesano, senior curator of prints, drawings and photographs at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, chose 60 works from artists in all 50 states. It was an honor to participate with such heady company that included leading contemporary printmakers.

"Lobster" is a one-of-a-kind monotype where using the subtractive method I remove black etching ink from a metal plate with cardboard, brushes, fingers and towels to create a lobster on a platter with energy, movement and depth. By using black ink only and supersizing the image the viewer is challenged to see beyond the typical red lobster. More works on paper using this technique can be viewed on my website.
