The multi-level technique chosen to create the works is an amalgam of traditional drawing and printmaking techniques finalized in archival inkjets. The interwoven old and new techniques fit well conceptually, with subject-matter that covers many time periods.
I’m exploring the possibilities of digital media and printing, while preserving a traditional drawing and printmaking sensibilities. In the process I start with the iconic Manhattan cityscape, creating negative, rotating space, and re-defining this schematic image. Furthermore, I create traditional pencil drawings, which are afterwards scanned, fine- tuned digitally and finally printed with archival inkjet on German etching paper. The ultimate result has the atmospheric and tactile quality of traditional printmaking techniques.
