From 10 to 20 October, I participated in a 10-day workperiod organised by Wobby Club and Make Eindhoven. During this residency at the printmaking studio I focused mostly on making monoprints and dry needle prints with the big etching press. The pieces I made were a visual research of the images & symbols that recently are featured in my work like masks, shepherds, birds & comets. I also did a series of risograph collaborations with Victoria Hoogstoel, were she would make paper cut outs and print them over my geometrical patterns.
