Unlike the time consuming and technically complex etching process, the creation of monotypes is immediate and requires spontaneous, intuitive decisions. Zurier created his monotypes with watercolour on copper and plastic plates, and painting on the two materials gave different results once the prints were pulled: the monotypes pulled from copper plates turned out to have a greater transparency in colour, while those made from plastic were more opaque.
Monotypes are unique works, created on a featureless plate. In contrast to other printing techniques, the artist does not leave permanent marks on the plate but simply paints on its surface. The plate thus serves as a mere vehicle to transfer the artist’s painting onto paper; the resulting image cannot be printed twice. The residue ink may be used to create so-called ‘ghosts’, which give the artist the possibility of testing variations of an image.
