Printing Fingerprint Prints

Our bodies make prints in some physical capacity everyday. We make footprints in the sand, leave handprints on the doors we open, and in some cases, give fingerprints after being arrested…

My latest group of monotypes, examine how my own fingerprints have slightly altered over time due to scarring, burning and loss of tissue. The original linear design of our fingerprint confirms our existence while the aged fingerprint tells our life story.

I find it symbolic and natural to use a monotype process to produce a unique print of a unique fingerprint.
