Switzerland 1957

I etch and play around with a single matrix, until it surrenders – in both the literal and figurative senses, letting forms emerge as they emerge, like automatic writing, without thinking, in an organic, instinctive way. I produce series or families of images and juxtapose them in order to create new images. My work is always a work in progress, with infinite possibilities.

Sometimes I develop my work on the basis of monotypes, witch matrix is a drawing or portrait I work on in different ways in order to produce four and six portraits, conveying each time a different impression of the same person.
