The suite of five smoked inkjet monoprints, , american singers (e, g, b, d, f) (chorus), from 2009, references a process Hamilton employed in several installations, including parallel lines at the Sao Paulo Bienal, 1991, accountings, 1992 at the Henry Art Gallery in Seattle and more recently, accountings, 2009, at Carl Solway Gallery in Cincinnati, in which she used the crossed tips of two lit candles to "lick" wall surfaces with soot. The images of American Singers, a breed of canary, which comprise this suite of prints are stills selected from video which in turn captures in time the bird's fleeting movement and refers to Hamilton's inclusion of free flying canaries in past exhibitions.
A suite of five unique monoprints whose title refers to the notes on a music staff.
Each monoprint is a digital inkjet print on Enhanced Matte Paper of a still from a video of a yellow canary. Each print is individually smoked from the flame of two lighted candles. A protective coating of Delacroix Fixatif was sprayed on each print.
