Encaustic Monotype Prints

Encaustic monotype prints are an improvisational method of printmaking. Each print is made in quick succession, by directly melting wax-based (encaustic) pigment upon a hot plate. The artist then lays paper onto the hot plate and uses a printing baren to apply light pressure and pick up the colors applied — yielding richly colored abstract compositions. Each print is unique, and no two prints can ever be the same.

The title of this series refers to a poem by Sylvia Plath published in 1971, about finding light in the darkness among the waterlilies.
