PrintmakingThrough my graphic design studies and media-oriented concepts, I discovered the graphic world of printmaking. For me, combining simple graphic elements such as surface, shape, line and color with own statements using a wide variety of craft techniques means visualization and experimenting to answer questions.
The printmaking techniques reveal the invisible aspects of a print template through printing and serve me primarily for abstraction. Above all, the themes of time, decay and construction in relation to contradictions are recognizable to me through patterns, contrasts, collage and image segments. It`s exciting to use repeating print templates of any kind, like a text that is constantly evolving and then conveys content at the end. The focus during the printing process is not on the individual print, but rather on the series or a sequence of prints with the same themes and inspirations.
I also use the joint art projects in public environments with sculpture and concepts as inspiration for my graphic print art. The character of industrial materials, the diversity of stone surfaces and also photography fascinate me in the combination of identity and reproduction. Time as a yardstick and historical witness. Everyday metals and materials document the intellectual aspect of intaglio printing and are a great source of inspiration for further work. Printing in layers and thus putting together a final puzzle is closely linked to the printing techniques intended to convey my expression.
