To printmaker Peggy Badenhausen color relationships are a primary interest and a key connection to her environment. Her monotypes are referential rather than representational, using colors that are specific to a landscape, an architecture, or a situation. Made with oil-based etching ink on either plexiglass or wood plates, and run it through the press many times, each layer adds information. The unpredictable accidents of the process provides welcome changes and surprises, an experience of both discipline and spontaneity. Badenhausen received a BA from Newton College in Boston and her MA from Temple University in Philadelphia.
