Zapatista Indian Land Test Print (2010)

What is a test print…it is essentially a monoprint. The image you see here shows both the front and back of the print. A one of a kind print. If we borrow the definition from Wikipedia:

“Monoprints are known as the most painterly method among the printmaking techniques; it is essentially a printed painting. The characteristic of this method is that no two prints are alike. The beauty of this medium is also in its spontaneity and its combination of printmaking, painting and drawing media.  Monoprints may also involve elements that change, where the artist reworks the image in between impressions or after printing so that no two prints are absolutely identical.”
