Loss (63×45 cm approx)

This monoprint took a while to get going – the stark contrast between the red and black and the middle part with little in the way of openings didn’t give me any hints of where to start. But this impenetrable surface eventually steered me towards using the central enclosed space as an area from which tentacles/veins could flow out and into. I wanted also to keep the work ‘organic’ and tactile. At the end of the process I toned down the red slightly although the colour is still a ‘bit in you face’.
