description ༄

blind embossment chine-collé art print inspired by the ancient art of alchemy and wisdom of Nature. They show you the animated forces of the polarised world we live in ~ the light and the dark, above and below, masculine and feminine ~ and their point of union in the center. They whisper a soft message for hard times.

materials ༄
vintage paper and coloured pencil on Fabriano etching paper
each piece is unique and will have small variations in the shape and hue of the paper and pencil details.

dimensions  ༄
150 x 210 mm (unframed)
180 x 240 (framed) 

techniques

a blind-embossment (also known as debossing) is the process of pressing a design or pattern into the surface of paper or cardstock without adding any ink or foil. The result is a raised, tactile image that can be seen and felt. A delicate, subtle relief in paper, made in my studio with a heavy etch press.

for some pieces I combine this technique with chine-collé; I add a small torn piece of thin handmade Chinese or Japanese paper in the middle of the etching paper, then I place the plate with the design on top and roll it through the etch press.

lino-cutting is the technique I use for creating most molds or plates that carry the design; I draw on a piece of linoleum (made of linseed oil, pine resin and cork dust) and remove the lines with lino cutting tools. With a mold I can create a few pieces, each slightly different due to the qualities and differences of the paper - some of them finished with a touch of coloured pencil.
