Arlene Farenci has brought her direct style of painting to her printmaking. She chooses techniques that best lend itself to her spontaneous and painterly style, such as monoprinting and most recently Mokulito .
Mokulito is a printmaking technique based on the characteristics of lithography and woodblock printing. The organic and ever-changing characteristics of the wood opens up new possibilities with each print and Arlene isn’t afraid of pushing the limits. She trusts her instincts as she goes about printing, and she trusts that the medium will reveal interesting results. Having developed her own visual vocabulary, her marks are like miniature calligraphic icons that dance along the surface of the paper that have their own dialogue that lets the viewer listen in.
Arlene became a member of MGC in 2008 and has been serving on the board for the past few years.
