Talk w. legendary printmaker Siv Johansson

May 14 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Welcome to a talk with Siv Johansson, legendary printmaker who has helped artists such as Lena Cronqvist, Lars Lerin, Jesper Waldersten and Linn Fernström explore the world of copper printmaking. Siv Johansson’s work with drypoint has received particular attention, in Sweden and internationally.

At the age of 81, Siv Johansson is still active, but changes in the landscape of print sales has made it hard för her to keep the printshop she shares with Johan Brauner. During the exhibition at ed. art, a portfolio containing prints by Lena Cronqvist, Jesper Waldersten, Lars Lerin and Siv Johansson herself will be sold. All proceeds go to the maintenance of the printshop.

We want to highlight the amazing craftsmanship behind this old artistic mode of expression and show how it is used and updated in today’s artworld. Drypoint is one of the oldest methods of art printmaking, dating back to the 15th century. The technique is simple yet refined – by creating scratches in the surface of a plate, the artist can multiply his or her artwork. Drypoint prints have their own characteristics, the softness of the lines being perhaps the most important one.
