2013, Relief monotype on Rieves BFK, pastel, 24"w x 36"h

The perspective of seeing the back of someone is voyeuristic; you can see them, but they cannot see you. Then again, there is no indication when you look at this print—previously shown unframed—that you are looking at a person at all. Just a blue shirt. My goal is that the pigment, marks and slight embossment into the paper are seductive enough to get the viewer to gently touch its surface. If successful, the blue powder from the print will transfer to the viewer’s fingertips, and a static image of a back turned, in turn, marks them.
