Mary Monoprints

This series of monoprints are explorations of images of Mary from a medieval hymn I found a number of years ago. I have been exploring the metaphors from the hymn line by line for nearly a decade now. Through an encounter with sacred architecture and Marian art during my study abroad many years ago, I came to have a new understanding of the Virgin Mary.

Mary the Dawn, Christ the perfect day;
Mary the Gate, Christ the heavenly Way.

Mary the Root, Christ the mystic Vine;
Mary the Grape, Christ the sacred Wine.

Mary the Wheat-sheaf, Christ the living Bread;
Mary the Rose tree, Christ the Rose blood-red.

Mary the Font, Christ the cleansing Flood;
Mary the Chalice, Christ the saving Blood.

Mary the Temple, Christ the temple’s Lord;
Mary the Shrine, Christ the God adored. 

Mary the Beacon, Christ the haven’s Rest;
Mary the Mirror, Christ the Vision blest.

– Medieval Hymn

What is a monoprint? A “hand-pulled print” refers to the traditional printmaking process where a plate is created that can then be rolled through a press multiple times to create multiple images. A monoprint uses the same traditional process – an image on a plate, rolled through a press, but it only has one iteration. Unlike an etching or engraving or woodcut, where the image remains impressed on the plate and can be inked and run again, a monoprint is a completely unique image. It is more closely related to painting than other forms of printmaking.
