Artist's statement:
"Terra Incognita is part of my Blue Moment series and alludes to the refraction of light off snow and ice crystals, and the light transitioning in winter twilight, a perennial inspiration that examines such immersions and illusions of the color blue.   

This monoprint is made with the “pressure printing” process, in which various cut out cardstock forms are placed on the backside of the paper, as it goes thru the press on an inked-up plexi plate. The pressure is set “just so”, so that a full impression reveals the cut shapes, and other areas are without full pressure leaving lighter, ghost-y areas and halos. The residue impressions on the plexi are also used again, so a generative process enables reversals, layers, ghost prints. I further worked the prints in this Blue Moment series by hand coloring with brush and gouache paint, applied through stencils or directly, and further transferred layers of ink in an evolutionary process."
