    About The Work

    For this editioned work, Arturo Herrera collaborated with the printers at Keystone Editions to experiment with the possibilities for interaction between sculpture and printmaking. The colourful composition which serves as the base of the work is a collage composed of various printmaking techniques layered upon different materials. While the lithographic process generally guarantees the uniformity of an edition, Herrera’s hand-applied printing ink brushstrokes introduce an element of the individual to the piece. Centrally-placed upon the print is an aluminium baking pan. Images were “printed” onto the metal form employing a technique known as “water transfer printing”–the image is printed onto a clear film which is then transferred onto the object by means of a water bath. By manipulating the movement of the water, the images could be individually distorted and adapted to the aluminium shape. The resulting unique prints emphasise the principles of variation and randomness as essential formal considerations.
