Untitled Ink Painting ‘Monotype’ by Peter Voulkos

About

This untitled abstract expressionist piece is a monotype (ink painting) by the hand of the inimitable enfant terrible of American Postwar ceramics and sculpture, Peter Voulkos. Effectively an original painting transferred directly to paper, the monotype is classified as a print only because it is created by making an impression on paper off of an inked surface. But unlike every other form of printmaking, which results in editions of greater or lesser size, the monotype process yields only a single, unique work of art, basically a painting in ink. This one is a very powerful, dreamlike image by a tirelessly inventive artist..This untitled abstract Expressionist piece is a monotype (ink painting) by the hand of the inimitable enfant terrible of American post-war ceramics and sculpture, Peter Voulkos.
