Atelier Kapnos

Art studio in The Hague

Linocuts:
Engraving on linoleum plates has been in my practice since the art school. It is a technique that allows me to work totally independently from beginning to end, meaning that I can experiment with only limitation my own strength.
In the most recent works I experiment with white areas inspired by cloth design and pocket lining fabric. Although I have already printed two works on good paper, this series is ongoing.

This print is called ‘White noise’ and is made with two plates.

Etchings:
Etching demands less physical strength than linocutting, but using the acid bath and printing is something that I can only do in external studios.
I am busy preparing the plates for new works. These are etchings that I made in the Vrije Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten in The Hague in 1997-98. There are more plates from that time and the plan is to print those too as the engraving work moves ahead.

Plate sizes: 24,5 x 37,3 cm and 20,2 x 29,4 cm (Apocalypses)
