Katarzyna Coleman is from London and studied at Hornsey College of Art. Her work explores industrial & urban landscapes, predominantly the unarranged landscape near her studio in the harbour area of Great Yarmouth, Norfolk.
Monoprinting is the most painterly type of printmaking, made by brushing, rolling and painting with oil-based ink on a non-absorbent surface or plate. This plate with the paper applied on top, is then run through the press at high pressure.
The monotype is a form of printmaking where the image can only be made once, unlike most printmaking which allows for multiple originals. Therefore, each monoprint is unique.
My process of monoprinting involves building up the image in thin layers and running through the press numerous times.
I use Shackell and Edwards ink on Somerset 300gsm paper.
