Artwork description

These monotypes capture the intensity of the weather systems in New York, where Jacklin has lived for the past 30 years. Draughtsmanship is at the heart of Jacklin’s practice and he adopts a gestural approach to printmaking which is well-served by the medium of monotype which allows for great spontaneity. The image is painted directly onto the plate, and then a mixture of turpentine and oil is ‘spritzed’ on to create effects of atmosphere, movement, light and shadow.

In Jacklin’s words; ‘I always think of the city as an arena. The light shining down is my spotlight, in which I can create my own drama.’
