print::making

Printmaking   is   an   art   form   of   the   visual   arts   group.   It   encompasses   four   different   techniques,   (1)   relief   printing   (as   the oldest   form   of   printmaking),   (2)   intaglio   printing,   (3)   flat   (or   planographic)   printing   and   (4)   screen   printing.   Printmaking   is actually   a   very   old   art,   whereby   the   printing   plates   are   prepared   in   often   very   complex   and   elaborate   processes.   From these   plates,   prints   are   subsequently   being   pulled   onto   special   papers.   Each   and   every   print   is   a   handmade   original, numbered   and   signed   by the   artist. Traditional   printmaking   has   nothing   in   common with   printing from   a   computer   printer: these   are   actually   reproductions   (also   called   giclée)   and   are   produced   cheaply   from   inkjet   printers,   often   in   huge   editions and unfortunately sold as “originals”.

intaglio::prints intaglio prints are pulled from etched or engraved metal (copper, zinc, aluminum, steel) or plastic plates.                      click on picture above for more intaglio prints mokulito::prints mokulito   is   a   flat   printing   technique.   the   process   is   similar   to   stone   lithography,   but   instead   of   a   stone   slab,   a   plywood plate is used to draw upon and pull prints from it.                      click on picture above for more mokulito prints screen::prints for   screen   prints,   a   very   finely   meshed   sieve   in   a   frame   (the   screen)   is   covered   with   photo-sensitive   emulsion,   which   is light-exposed to the drawing (process similar to an analog film development).                      click on picture above for more screen prints

artist‘s :: statement

Exposure to the   often   challenging work   and   life   environments   has   sharpened   my   awareness   for   social   and   environmental issues. Art   can   play   a   pivotal   role   in   addressing   and   communicating   cross-faculty   and   socio-ecological   problems. Any form of   discrimination,   global   warming,   access   to   clean   water,   plastic   waste,   endangered   wildlife:   just   some   of   the   many concerns I try to incorporate into my artwork. My    practice    as    printmaker    encompasses    all    four    printmaking    techniques,    relief,    intaglio,    litho    and    screen    printing. Preferential   use   of   non-hazardous,   environmentally   friendly,   affordable   and   preferably   renewable   materials   is   dominating my   artwork.   Some   of   the   techniques   I   have   extensively   studied   and   developed   further   with   a   view   to   make   it   more accessible   to   fellow   artists.   Mokulito   (lithography   on   plywood)   and   electro   etching   (a   process   similar   to   galvanizing)   are environmentally friendly, non-hazardous and cheaper alternatives to stone lithography and acid etching, respectively. Portrayed   motives   are   mainly   related   to   wildlife   and   endangered   animals:   loss   of   habitat,   poaching,   pollution   and   climate change   have   regrettably   pushed   many   creatures   around   the   globe   to   -or   already   over-   the   brink   of   extinction.   I   feel   an urge   to   address   these   issues   through   my   work   to   hopefully   raise   the   awareness   that   not   only   our   but   also   the   coming generations will be able to witness the beauty and richness of our flora and fauna. During   early   phases   of   my   artistic   activity,   I   have   performed   autodidactic   artwork   -   impressions   gathered   from   many different   countries   in   which   I   lived   and   worked.   The   formal   art   education   at   the   Vienna   Art   School   as   a   late   and   more recent   experience   has   not   only   allowed   trying   out   all   forms   of   visual   arts,   but   has   in   particular   sparked   my   interest   for more contemporary and novel art techniques such as installations in public spaces and digital media. In   support   of   disadvanteged   people,   I   work   as voluntary   art   therapist   with   coma   patients   (basal   stimulation),   rehabilitation of alcohol and drug addicts („therapy for sentences“) and juveniles with MS, trisomy21 and other handicaps.
