Shing A ling by Katharina Immekus
For the artist book, Shing-a-ling Katharina Immekus made twelve abstract line drawings that served as a template for twelve relief printing clichés. In up to four print procedures the plates were (re-)arranged again and again on the sheet, twisted against each other and printed on top of each other in vibrant colours.
In this experimental but controlled process, a vigorous artist book has been created with cliché prints, whose colourfulness and printing appearance makes one think of untamed felt pen drawings. Taking a closer look the dense, seemingly impenetrable web of lines, now and then interrupted by lighter, single-coloured prints, is revealed to be the result of a printmaking process, to be combinations or variations of the same recurring lines and structures.
