NONSENSE PROJECT

2017

Nonsense was a project developed during my Master in Illustration in England.

 

The main goal of this proect was to broaden and deepen our knowledge on the traditional printmaking techniques - Linocut and screenprinting - while at the same time creating a process of selection of images to use that was controlled randomness - the reason why Nonsense was the main theme to develop in this project.

NONSENSE PART II

2017

"The Invisible Cities" inspired by Italo Calvino, Engraving on Paper, 2016

Inspired in some excerpts of Ítalo Calvino’s literary work “The Invisible Cities” and using printmaking techniques on plate, this illustrative and graphic work emerged and six of the cities described in the book - Clarisse, Diomira, Zaíra, Despina, Dorotéia and Zóra – gained some shape.

 

Therefore, this work was made with some specific materials such as a sepia brown ink and a yellowish printmaking paper, so it could have not only the representation of each one of cities, but also so it could give to the spectator the sensation that he/she is standing before an old map or a postcard.
