after coultas (south-africa-gapa-gogo-close-up) by Jacob Yerex. $0.00 USD, 2010, other, 24 in x 30 in x 0 in (WxHxD), original. Jacob Yerex "after coultas (south-africa-gapa-gogo-close-up)", 2010 monotype 30" x 24" About the artist: Jacob Yerex has recently investigated the process of the monotype in a way that delivers his artwork as sensitive and intuitive while remaining somewhat mysterious. The singularity and happenstance involved in making portraits such as “After Coultas (South Africa - GAPA - Gogo close-up)” hints at the abandonment of control demanded of the artist during this distinct printmaking process. Contrasting images of elderly women from his personal collection with an assembly of portraits involved in The Grandmother Project, Yerex enters into a dialogue not only with the concept of “knowing” in the most personal, subjective sense, but also that of knowing photography as a vehicle for accurate and objective reality, especially when contrasted against the sentimental implications of the medium. Yerex exposes a multitude of juxtapositions with his artistic practices, setting up tensions that inevitably produce novel ideas and works of art. Description: These images are all one-off images they are not part of a printed series. Monotyping is a type of printmaking made by drawing or painting on a smooth surface. The image is then transferred onto a sheet of paper by pressing the two together. These monotypes have been produced using oil paint and a Japanese or Chinese rice paper. Unlike monoprinting, monotypes produce a unique print or a “monotype” because most of the ink/paint is removed during the initial printing.
