Tekla McInerney‘s monotypes are striking images and bring to mind everything from traditional Japanese prints to Anton Corbijn’s photographs of Joy Division. These are beautifully composed monotypes with their stark contrasts, use of negative space, the focussed energy, the balance and least of all the meditative qualities each print brings to bear on you.
Yet under this tranquility is a torrent of natural violence; winds shake up forests, blizzards blot out horizons, mountains disappear, beaches are desolate and freezing. They are not places suitable for habitation.
But then that’s what I see. You may see something else entirely. And what’s more we’ll never know as I can find absolutely nothing on Tekla McInerney other than she makes monotypes and lives in America.
