Using a limited colour palette, Monro here experiments with the notions of light and shadow to produce a tangible feeling of depth. This effect is achieved through screen printing by using mesh screens to transfer ink onto the surface of the work. Layers of ink can be built up, with some areas protected from saturation by blocks or ink-resistant coatings.
