Earlier this year, I started making abstract monoprints on an etching press purely for the fun of it. This piece marks the first oil painting that I’ve completed on top of one of those exploratory prints.

Starting with a monoprint has allowed me to compose abstractly on-the-fly, without knowing precisely what the final image will be. In this case, the shapes and textures in the initial print gave me the feeling of being caught up in a whirlwind and deflected off course. This concept really resonated with me, especially during these chaotic and uncertain times, and I sought to carry that feeling through in the final painting.
