Belle Isle Bridge


Belle Isle Bridge
Magsig
Original Monotype print on Rives heavyweight Paper
2012, image is 8x10"
Edition of 1/1


This is an original, one of a kind monotype print of a section of the Belle Isle Bridge. It is printed with Faust black oil based ink on white Rives paper. 
My monotype prints are made by inking a plexiglass plate with a roller, then drawing into and wiping off ink to leave a design. Damp paper is then place on the plate and this is put through the press. The ink is transferred from the plate to the paper, so only one print can be made.

This print is presented in a board backed clear protective sleeve and packed carefully with extra card for strength.
It is unmounted and unframed. It is numbered 1/1 signed and dated

Damp paper is then place on the plate and this is put through the press. The ink is transferred from the plate to the paper, so only one print can be made.
