Linocuts in which you will have to find your way

Graphic designer by trade, it is usually on screen that I spend most of my time. Passionate about paper and with this desire to find a disconnected activity I became passionate about linocut.

This artisanal process requires time and precision. I start by drawing my patterns and then I transfer them to the linoleum plate. I then engrave this plate using a tool called a gouge. This is a step that requires concentration and a great mastery of his gesture since there is unfortunately no ctrl + Z: a bad manip' and sometimes you have to start all over again. Then comes the time for printing. I ink my plate with a roller, position the paper on top and go through a manual press. It is necessary to re-ink the plate for each new sheet. This process results in unique prints because the inking will be different for each of them. It is at the moment when I remove the freshly printed sheet from the plate that it reveals its character and its own roughness.

In an ecological approach, I chose to use an ink that can be cleaned without solvent. The paper that protects the prints as well as the envelopes in which they are sent are recyclable.

I chose to work on graphic patterns in which I come to create labyrinths. Thus each linocut is both a decorative object and a game. One entrance, one exit and one path... It's up to you;)
