Ken's monotypes were included in the Colorado Springs Open Press Studios 15 Year Retrospective, Colorado Springs Contemporary Arts Center, Colorado.

All monotypes (sometimes called monoprints) are unique images.  Mine are usually made with two plates and chine colle on Rives BFK off-white paper unless otherwise noted.  How monotype and monoprints are made
 
 
Group exhibit at the Colorado Springs
Contemporary Arts Center, 2004

     
Off and on for a number of weeks in early 2012, I've been working on 4 new etchings. Here's an 8 minute video of how these plates are printed. This is a 14th Century method for making artworks on paper. What a grand, time consuming process.

I'm with Mark Lunning, the master printer and owner of Open Press Ltd, Denver. Mark is inking and printing two color plates with a Chine Colle (colored mulberry paper) added to the process. The result is a three-color landscape print. I'll be releasing this and 3 additional etchings very soon.
