"Snakeskin Gloves 1", 8" x 10", monotype on paper, 2020
The Snakeskin Gloves were created after the "A Narrative Rewritten" boxing gloves series. For this collection I was exploring material and referencing the "snake" from Garden of Eden story. This connection implies the defeat of the snake from the Biblical story and using the remains an essential part of creating the tool for "the fight." The monotype print was made with oil based inks on plexiglass plates. This was a three-step, free-hand process, using additive and reductive painting techniques.
