Meetings and Collaborations
A common thread links the moment of creation of the work of art to that of its conservation.
The artist experiments with all materials and find his path. Why engraving? Why choosing one technique over the other? Why choosing a specific type of paper? Why the sign or the color?
The printer, in close contact with the artist, enters his world, interprets and collaborates through all his technical experiences, adding the contribution of skilful mastery … the matrix is created, inked and printed … the work comes to life through tools and materials.
Discovering, experimenting, learning … what are we using? What is used today and what was used in the past? Enter the secrets of the trade.
The conservator has the task of making sure that the work of art lasts as long as possible …
I invite you to explore a gallery of images linked to my experience of collaboration with the “RADURA” group, a think tank and image laboratory at the Spazio MTR engraving studio in Spoleto, 2019/2020.
