Silver Nights I

Metal Monotype

Website imagery cannot capture the metallic qualities of this medium. Many who have viewed the original work speak of its "visual whisper", created as reflective light subtly varies the image with movement of the observer; others are fascinated by the areas of reticulation created by this process.

Metal monotype is a proprietary process that Jenn has developed over several years of exploration. Modified etching inks are used in conjunction with various types of metal plate. Variations from subtle coloration, similar to à la poupé, to results similar in appearance to enameling or impasto oil painting are all possible. Often the images are embossed.
