Non-toxic workshop Day 1

IMG_5870.PNG
I’m in Capileira, 1.436 metres above sea level in the hot mountains of Granada, Spain – attending a one-week international workshop in non-toxic intaglio printing. The last intaglio print I made was twenty years ago, in a symposium by the Gudenå river near Silkeborg, Denmark – so it’s about time I got my hands dirty from printing ink again.

On day one, Henrik Bøegh introduced us seven participants – artists from Sweden, Norway, Austria, France and Denmark – to his studio and to the photo-polymer technique we will explore during the week, while we’re being spoiled by delicious Spanish meals prepared in the breaks between assisting Henrik (and us) in the studio by Åse Højer – a renowned artist herself.

So – here it is: my first intaglio print plate in 20 years – before and after the short trip through the printing press. It’ just a test of techniques, art it definitely is not. That will come later (maybe)…

Did you know that you can easily get to know the story behind many of my paintings and collages? Anywhere on pryds.com, go to the “Art” menu and click one of the submenus to read about the ideas behind the work, or see early versions or related art. One of the most recent addition is the one highlighted here – the complete “Blönduós Forever” series.

ÅV15 – besøg Østerbros kunstnere i weekenden

AAV15_86x75mmKunst2100

Vil du se, hvordan en kunstner arbejder? Så er muligheden der i denne weekend 25.-26. april, hvor der er Åbne Værksteder på Østerbro. 27 kunstnere byder indenfor på i alt ti forskellige adresser og er klar til at vise både færdige værker og skitser frem – og til at snakke med de besøgende om det kunstneriske arbejde og ideerne bag.

Arrangør er Kunst2100, hvis bestyrelse jeg har fornøjelsen af at være formand for. For 11. år i træk går medlemmer af Kunst2100 i dialog med publikum ved at invitere indenfor til et sjældent kig i “maskinrummet” på atelierer og værksteder. Selv deltager jeg ikke i år, men Lisbeth har lånt et hjørne hos Troldanden i Hobrogade 10, hvor hun vil vise sine Tekstile Smykker og præsentere bogen af samme navn. Bogen kan du læse mere om her.

Download folderen med kort over de ti værksteders placering – alle inden for gå-afstand – eller hent et eksemplar på et af de to Østerbro-biblioteker, hos bageren eller andre udvalgte steder i bydelen. På gensyn lørdag eller søndag – der er åben begge dage kl. 11–17.

 

Untitled, 2015. Work in progress

Arbejdsbord på atelieret, april 2015.
Things are happening in the studio. Here’s my work table, seen from above, with glue, paint, palette knives, brushes and stencils, and a canvas in progress for the “Fund 14-15” exhibition. Below are a couple of other paintings/collages (each 50 × 40 cm, on canvas) not quite finished – and I’ve yet to give them a title. I just don’t know yet what to call ’em. Any suggestions?
