Also known as the most painterly method among the printmaking techniques, mono prints are essentially printed drawings.
The main characteristic is that no two prints are alike; although images can be similar, editioning is not possible. The appeal of the mono print lies in the unique translucency that creates a quality of light very different from a painting on paper or print, and the beauty of this media is also in its spontaneity and its combination of printmaking, painting and drawing mediums. The technique is highly skilled not only because the image is reversed when printed and you can't lean on the paper, but while working it is hard to see what the final effect will be when the print is made.
This series of strong images has developed over the last few years from the discovery of these incredible machines. Using the power of space with the composition Georgina strives to convey the colossal scale of these monsters. Its an ongoing passion and one that doesn't seem to be fading.
Georgina worked alongside a fellow Artist/Taxidermist to expose and partly record this mysterious craft in its interim stages. All artworks were studied from life.
This collection enabled Georgina to inject some humour into her Fine Art practice.
