Malini Maunsell’s work reflects a lengthy engagement with searching for place, and its ultimate resolution by finding sturdy inner ground. This can be seen for example, in her use of multiple layers of colour, applied over time, along with her tendency to work with found marks, and the depth and silence that she eventually forms in each completed print.
Malini’s methodology includes preparation of the work-space as ritual, working in silence, and looking for the potential in marks arising from the combination of tools, ink and paper rather than working toward a pre-determined outcome. The completed prints ask for relatively extended attention from the viewer, generating a contemplative, perceptual experience within which to discern layers of meaning, whether embedded in the work or brought to it by the viewer.
