  • untitled (8/14, lost matrix technique), woodcut on vegetal paper

woodcut on orange vegetal paper, number 8/14, paper dimensions 21 x 23 cm (width x height)

The matrix was engraved in two phases, first the yellow shape is cut and the printings in yellow are made in all the copies. Then the matrix is excavated again, defining the prussian blue shapes, and the printings in blue are made (they look green at the end). After the second phase of the engraving the yellow shape cannot be printed again - we lose the yellow matrix.
From a series of 14 manual prints, numbered and signed, with printed area 15 X 16 cm, february 2017.
This is a vintage vegetal paper, bright and translucent, with several spots and irregularities due to the old way of producing it.
