Cotuit Center for the Arts
Bloom is the first integrated exhibition mounted in collaboration with Cape Cod Collaborative Arts Network. This exhibition will feature the work of local artists of all abilities, including artists with disabilities who have created work inspired by the theme. For this juried show: I continued to use some of Lyn Belisle's collage-making techniques, but I made modifications by printing a gold acrylic Gelli™ monotype on Yupo paper to be used as the substrate. I like the brightness of the paper, and it's a forgiving surface if smudges need to be wiped clean. This example of the gold monotype has bubble texturing from the Gelli™ plate. I don't mind them for an aged fresco look and if there is some lift-off from the photo transfer, it doesn't matter. I can always add another piece of printed tengucho paper on top of the transfer.
