  • About the work


This monotype is part of a series inspired by time spent working in Umbria, Italy. 

The work was inspired by Gourlay's response to the surrounding color and the geometry of the architecture. They also play with thoughts about sound and music and how that is reflected around a space. 

The title kitha is related to a series of works that she titled kithara which is the name for an ancient Greek instrument similar to a lyre. 

This series of monotypes was created at The Center for Contemporary Printmaking in the autumn of 2014.
