Grady Gordon Macabre Monotypes

thewildhunt_large44452

Grady Gordon‘s work evokes many clear influences but remains completely unique. He prints his images with the relatively obscure technique called ‘monotype’. These prints are made by creating an image in ink or paint on a smooth, non-absorbent surface then pressing paper onto it. It is a combination of the aesthetic possibilities of this medium combined with Grady’s mark-making brilliance that really sets him apart. His images somehow manage to be both loose and expressionistic, and meticulous and detailed. His is an alchemist, versed in ancient mystical lore and future art magic.
