The artistic field of etching is endless and exciting. Despite the required precision, it is full of surprises. My heart would beat rapidly every time I rolled up the protective blankets of the press to reveal a newly printed paper. I was never interested in making identical copies, and much preferred seeing small differences between the prints. Etching is a field of struggle – between the biting acid and the protective varnish; in dry point, between the engraving chisel and the hard metal; in mono print and viscosity, between the oily and non-oily colours. I have studied the art of etching for years, yet I am far from exhausting it.
