Cambodia Monoprints

I wanted to give the monoprint an energy and for it to flow and so I used a range of tools to apply the ink. I specifically chose the colours to represent different aspects, for example: the gold to represent the robes of the monks, the grey - the colour of the elephants, turquoise and blue for the sky and the sea, purple and yellow, the butterfly's and orchids etc. I incorporated figurative elements in these abstract works, but decided that the more I steered clear of the figurative, the more successful they were, as the more abstract ones were able to convey all of what I was trying to say, rather than just part of it.
