Forever drawing.—Drawing as a form of thinking builds the core of my artistic practice and culminates in intaglio printmaking.
Drawing allows me to quickly move and spontaneously develop ideas. The pencil’s lines directly follow the departures and detours of my mind whereas printmaking is a longsome process. I love the immediateness in my drawing, and yet I miss the intensity of the plate pressing in the paper and the condensing and ultimate qualities of printmaking. When I draw I have the print in mind. A contour is not a contour, but the shape of the copperplate. Of the many drawings only some are to become prints.
