Meg Hartwell

I was an operating room scrub nurse for fifteen years, passing scissor, clamp, even saws to help fix the human body. I was privileged to see and hold body organs, and x-ray images. Music was always playing in the background. The atmosphere in the room had a calm control in the midst of chaos. Tools or surgical instruments had a specific purpose and fascinated me. This experience influenced my art and shaped my life.

My process of making monotypes and mixed media pieces begins with a broad view of my previous monotypes and collected imagery, and a hunt for inspiring images. I find music invigorates my creativity and allows the process to be more intuitive than analytical.

Monoprints and monotypes allow me to work quickly finding my marks, images, textures - like painting with paper. I cut and tear images and lay them on a background. I try to work quickly to let spontaneity release my work.

My imagery is inspired by taking innumerable photographs and keeping track of ideas, everyday objects, shapes, patterns, color combinations, unusual perspectives, and studying a broad range of art.

The last stage of a piece is to cut, tear and re-assemble the images. The best stage is the surprise at the end.
