Cleveland Heights artist Deborah Pinter has immersed herself in the potential in creating monotype prints using things found in nature including branches, leaves and stones, a process she discovered at the Monothon event at Zygote Press.
She showed a series of such works earlier this year at the Maria Neil Art Project on Waterloo. She’ll now show another titled Ornamental Containment at the Heights Arts spotlight gallery. This one will feature circular compositions on square paper which she’s created by inking and layering the natural materials on the plating plate.
“By overlapping or entangling the subjects I am causing an uncontrolled natural rhythm,” she sys in her statement about the show. “Bold patterns start to emerge as branches and leaves crisscross like spokes in a wheel. These many contradictions allow me to continue to examine both nature and my relationship to the natural world.”
The show opens with a artist reception Fri 9/15 @ 6-9pm, and will be on view through Sun 10/29.
