Information about my residency at the Frans Masereel Centrum, Belgium (spring 2017)

Last spring I had the honor to work in Frans Masereel Centrum (Kasterlee, Belgium). I was doing some experiments with photopolymer, a technique I had last used when I was an art student. As a result, I created a small series of photopolymer prints of a lens-based performances I did during my stay in Kasterlee. The final form of the project is still open, and the work is in process. The outcome might be something combining text with the prints, and/or juxtaposing black and white polymer prints with color photography… In a link below, you’ll find an example of one of the photopolymers.

“Frans Masereel Centre is a place where national and international artists, researchers and graphic designers reside, meet and experiment. Frans Masereel Centre (1972) offers residencies and a working space to graphic designers, artists and critics who want to work with intaglio, relief printing, screen print or lithography, or who want to investigate the relationship of graphics with other visual arts. The focus is on creation and experimentation in the workshop.”
