Mark Clintberg | Pudenda 3-6
2016 | monoprint on somerset paper | 18 x 24 in
Mark Clintberg’s Pudenda 3-6 comes from a series of monoprints, each a unique image created using individually inked plates. The geometric forms evoke hard edge abstraction, but the variances from straight lines and the title Pudenda—a term often used in art history to refer to representations of the genitals—subtly implies a human element.
