Around the Vestiges


With the advances in the field of information technology, digital resources have been rapidly assimilated into many different sectors of human life. Artistic creation has not been immune to these changes. In the field of printmaking a range of possibilities is opening up with the combination of new resources and the archaic founding gesture of the mark and the print. Here, we discuss aspects of the practice of printmaking in contemporary times, the incorporation of new resources to traditional procedures and the various manifestations of the marking and printing processes that characterize printmaking and can also be seen in other forms of artistic production.
