This wonderful technique has ancient origins and it’s the one I prefer, because it leaves a lot of room for experimentation, and only at the end of the process the result is revealed.
I work instinctively, letting my intuition guide me without being too conditioned by technique.
The feeling you get from looking at the work is what counts.
I etch zinc using different processes, many of them experimental and using low-impact methodologies.
Starting with an idea, I begin working the metal and when the process is finished, I ink the matrix and print it on cotton paper, using the intaglio press.
In some cases I make small art runs, but in others, I try to personalize each copy, making it unique and unrepeatable.
A harmonious relationship between the material, the carving and the tools of the trade.
