Liz Wolf’s recent work continues her interest in reducing natural forms to their visual essence. The shape, texture and color of a natural element is synthesized into an abstraction. Her intent is to convey to the viewer the sensuous impression of the botanical.
The monoprints, each unique, are constructed by overlaying many layers of etching ink onto a heavy artist paper. The artist uses digital imagery that is transferred and leaves that are inked and printed. An array of contemporary printing techniques is used for image transfer. The techniques include: drawing thin layers of ink on plexiglass, transferring digital images via lithographic techniques, gum transfer and color xerox transfer.
