the gasometer print IV

these photos are from the last printing session in the studio. i have finally printed the last examples of the gasometer print, a commisson work i made for a stuttgart2009 calendar. remember, in july last year i was all busy with cutting and printing these...read more here
this 5 color linocut print in almost A2 size on handmade japanese kitakata paper was quiet a challenge and has cost me a lot of time and nerves. especially the last block with all the fine lines was very hard to print. i don't know if it would have been any easier with the use of a press, but pulling the prints by hand also allows a very accentuated and detailled way of printing. maybe the press would have smeared the fine lines in places i didn't want them to be..

i should post a better photo or scan of this anyway..

the calendar features 12 other stuttgart themed works by different well known artists from stuttgart and i am very thankful to be a part. unfortunately, the calendar was not available for public, but there's also a edition of 25 ( yes, 25 original hand pulled prints) available and from each print sold 70% go to the release art fund, which really is a good cause. if you are interested just send me a note or leave your comment...

by the way, spring is slowly crawling underneath the cold to southern germany, perfect weather to catch a cold, which, of course, i did too. never miss a trend ;)

wish you all nice beginning of the week..
