Exhibition and Collaboration with the Gallery
Engraving, n.e. is a group exhibition organized by the Edition Bucciali gallery and printmaking studio. This exhibition is entirely devoted to women artists with whom the printmaking studio has collaborated so far. Bearing in mind that the art produced by female artists still remains less visible and is to some extent being neglected, Edition Bucciali have chosen to honor not only those who have linked themselves to the gallery and workshop from its beginnings, but also those who have produced their artworks more recently.
The workshop's approach, including design, printing, publishing and distribution of the works, is unique. Each year since 1983, Edition Bucciali has been inviting guest artist from all over the world to come for a short stay to the city of Colmar and work in their studio run by Remy and Alma Bucciali who are in charge of all technical issues related to the preproduction process and printing. In June 2018 I had a chance to be the guest artist at the Edition Bucciali where I developed a series of engravings, etchings, aquatints and dry point prints. These prints are neither duplication nor interpretation; they represent the fruit of the artist's gesture applied directly to the copper, preserved as it is. Every year, Bucciali Editions produces more than two hundred limited editions, sold all over the world. The plates are destroyed after the printing and recycled, thus guaranteeing the authenticity and uniqueness of prints.
