A Point of View
Brecon Beacons 1
One of six A1 (image size) monotypes of views taken from two trips that Andy took to the Brecon Beacons in Wales last year.
This landscape is very affecting, barren and beautiful. The weight and stature of these monolithic shapes that pervade this range of hills and mountains change constantly as the light moves throughout the day.
The print was made by painting and rolling onto an A1 acetate ‘plate’ and then, once happy, printing the ‘plate through the press. The print was then reworked as needed.
It is printed on Fabriano Tiepolo and is framed in a handmade, wooden, painted and waxed frame using 2200 micron archival mount board.
Watch Andy making his monotype prints
Andy Lovell’s work feeds off his love of the British landscape, whether land sea or city. His paintings, made on location, evolve and develop back in the studio, emerging as silkscreen prints and monotypes that reflect the essence of that place as seen from Andy’s point of view.
The two very different processes offer contrasting characteristics that inform the final image; deep, rich, tonally nuanced prints with monotypes as opposed to a flatter, more textural and simplified image with silkscreen prints.
Andy is delighted to be exhibiting at the Mill Tye Gallery especially showing the three large monotype prints of views taken from his two trips he took to the Brecon Beacons in Wales last year.
