To explore rather than to explain

Through printmaking I get the tools to explore the visual language based on it´s own qualities. Not as a way to present a written story, some extern idea, but on it´s own right. The story of lines, textures, and colors meeting, mixing and building up – layer by layer.

The history of the print is based on craftsmanship, invented for bringing a message to a bigger audience, to explain rather than to explore. We do not want to throw the skills away, but through the artistic approach, by playing with the possibilities, printmaking is reborn, opening up for unique expression.
