2008, monotype, paper, 16 × 22.5 cm

To Honza Zamojski, works on paper are akin to a notebook, allowing swift and risky moves. The monotype on the cover of a book by Patricia Highsmith is the result of such dynamic yet laconic action. As the artist explains, “I enjoy the monotype: a simple technique, yet one tending to slip out of control. I am fond of the organic quality of black printing ink, which offers the qualities of resin and tar alike, deeply penetrating the structure of paper. In addition, it has none of the features of paint, no half-tones, no spectrum, making it my creative medium of choice.”
