Bham Now - Magic City Art Connection - Meet the Artist

https://bhamnow.com/index.php/2017/04/30/magic-city-art-connection-meet-artists/

 

Birmingham hosted the 34th annual Magic City Art Connection in Linn Park on April 28th-30th. The event included 200 artists from Alabama and across the country. We caught up with a few Magic City Art Connection artists to find out about their MCAC experience and work.

 

Celeste Amparo Pfau, MCAC’s 2017 Emerging artist – My process is called botanical monoprinting.   I gather natural materials from around Birmingham and the southeast.  I use a manually operated etching press in order to get clear images of my compositions.  I begin by rolling out a thin layer of oil based ink onto a sheet of plexiglass or thin metal.  And then I carefully lay my natural materials onto the inked surface.  I use this ink because it does not dry fast! This gives me all the needed time to create my images.  Once I am happy with my composition I carefully lay a piece of paper or fabric onto the surface and pass it through the press.  Depending on what image I make I will create multiple layered prints.  I also use the leaves that are inked up after passing them through the press in my compositions.
