Artist Erik Neff’s natural surroundings play a big role in his artwork. He lives and works in a Chagrin River headwater stream valley in rural Geauga County. His soft, organic grey-toned shapes reference the wooded environment, as well as his interest in biology and entomology.
Monoprinting is a form of printmaking that results in one unique print. To create this work Neff used thin wood pieces that he configured into shapes and glued onto a plexiglass plate. He used oil paint to create several different combinations of colors and marks on the plate, resulting in a unique print each time he ran his painted plate through the press.
