Award at 5th Bienal Internacional MiniPrint 2022 by Proyecte-Arte, Santa Fe, Argentina
I´m honored that my print "Dark skyes" (see this miniprint on Miniprints new under Pictures) was chosen to receive an award at this 5th MiniPrint exhibition in Santa Fe in Argentina. 184 artists and printmakers (out of more than 450 applicants) from the whole world were selected to exhibit in this 5th biennal.
My latest experiments:
Recently I have experimented with printmaking on different materials.
For instance using old Tetrapaks from f.i yoghurt, where I sprinkled the, inked them and printed them. I'm also testting to paint with aquarelle colours on a copperplate and print the plate. It's very spontaneous. Quite fun experiments.
I have started to work with a very old technique from the 15th century - Mezzotint.
A very time consuming technique since you create burrs on an empty plate with a rocker tool. I do that in at least 20 different angles and then when printing it the burrs catches ink and will produce a very soft and rich blackness over the whole plate. When I have reached full blackness then I scrape and burnish these burrs down and through that create the motive. It's very time consuming but very rewarding. Nothing beats the rich blackness in a mezzotint!
