monotype drawing
15 x 25 inches

"Following a fellowship with the Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop in 2008, Hilda began experimenting with imparting her physical presence into monotypes. Each print is consumed by what seem to be tick marks of a well-sharpened pencil, swirls of ink, and swabs of erasure. Instead, the ink is moved and removed by Shen’s own palms, fingers, fingernails, and elbows as she uses them to apply patterns and pressure, create tonality and evoke intimacy."
