A Man Ablaze With Energy [male nude]

Monotype: Purple Hair.


One of my favourite methods of printmaking is the three-colour separation monotype, which is quite involved. I explain the process on my website if you want to read more about it. This image [printed onto A1 BFK Rives paper] started as a life drawing of a male nude model; he is of Asian heritage and had purple hair at the time. The pose and the model’s personality inspired me to be very free with the drawn elements, the mark-making of the process and the resulting piece is probably far more abstract than most of my work, but I like it. He has a very Egon Schiele type of body so I cropped the image at the legs and head as Schiele often did with his figures.
