Abstract (English)

"The process of the making the imprint is intimate and fleeting: a tile is chosen, then strapped on to the body. When the strap is loosened and the tile removed revealing the image, the body immediately readjusts and the skin begins to regain its original shape. The imprints are ephemeral and in flux, lasting mere minutes. They are documented before the pattern loses its crispness. The resulting photographs focus closely on the embossed skin and its imperfections: hair, pores and moles intermingling ornamental fragments.

The works in Residue reflect multiple transferences of imagery, from drawing to object to print to photograph. A series of relief tiles are translated from sketches into 3D-printed tiles that are then blind embossed into skin. The resulting impression is documented through photography, and digitally printed onto paper. Through exploration of these processes, Residue: Tracing The Lore is an investigation into the language of printmaking’s material possibilities, as well as its function as a means for the transference of ideas and images." -- Publisher's website.
