MARCA D’AIGUA EMPREMTA DE FUSTA #
Watermark, Wood footprint.
Exhibition held in autumn 2020 at the CCM (Cultural Centre La Mercè in Girona).
Project financed by the grant of artistic residence of contemporary engraving, awarded by Bòlit (Centre of Contemporary Art of Girona) .
This project consisted of visiting the city's oldest carpenters and recovering useless pieces of wood with peculiar shapes, which a priori were created for industrial use. The result of this search ended with the transformation of these forms, recovering their fully symbolic and totemic character.
The technique used was Japanese xylography, printed with bamboo baren on 30-gram Ukiyo paper and monocolor calcographic ink.
The paper bottoms were hand-handled with water to the chinese ink.
Of all the engravings no numbered edition was made, only unique copies were printed.
