“A few years ago when I was teaching at Harvard, I had access to an etching press and began to do monotypes of imaginary landscapes. I continued these on a larger scale in a series done at the Garner Tullis press in New York. The monotypes revealed a horizon line and an active sky. I have departed from the picture plane, to which I was wedded for many years, to use deep space. This work shows greater spontaneity and painterly gesture than I have allowed before. ”—Idelle Weber
