Drypoint

Time Capsules opening (On my Drypoint work)

Those drypoint were made from my old drawings, depicting everyday objects and holiday scenes. The drawings were like visual journals back then, when I was living in Saitama prefecture in Japan during 2000-2006. Tracing back my own drawings brought me to the particular memories of the objects and places, and also to the memory of observing such details when I drew. It is like opening a short-term time capsules. I like drawing and to me, any act of mark-making (pencil drawing, smudging, scratching and even cutting) are drawing. Drypoint technique enables me to explore one of these modes of drawing. It makes my hand work in a different way than usual drawing, stimulates my thought process as I have to think about tones while drawing, and has a warm effect of the lines when printed on paper.
