Montlake at Twilight. 36"x24". Monoprint
In "Montlake at Twilight" Solomon "paints" a landscape with etching ink a a roller transferring it to paper using an etching press. The scene is of Montlake Boulevard as seen from the windshield of the artists car during the time after sunset when colors become transparent. Solomon addresses impressionism by making the effect of light an important part of the portrayal of a familiar scene. Often Solomon's work deals with skies as backgrounds for flying birds, where in this work the view is broadened to include the entire landscape.
