For the production of etching plates and photopolymer gravures (also toyobo etchings) I work together with top etching printer Eric Levert. Toyobo is a special printmaking technique where a digital file is exposed on a light-sensitive layer. The image is then washed out in water. The plate is a negative and can then be printed as a (positive) etching in circulation. It gives deep dark prints with a beautiful texture. With the ancient Chine-collé technique the image is transferred onto a surface that is bonded onto a heavier support in the printing process. Ultra thin Japanese paper pasted on the heavy cotton etching paper gives the artwork its beautiful color.

This is number 2 out of a triptych of photopolymer gravures that pays tribute to ‘boredom’ that has an evolutionary origin to motivate you to develop a more meaningful activity.
