Crab (Vintage I) – Susanna Widmann


‘This started off as an experiment and being happy with the result, I decided to do this limited edition. The plate has been under-exposed on purpose so the result is a softer contrast between the dark and the light areas. I used Sepia rather than Black ink and Fabriano Arborio paper, which is off white. What I like is the vintage feel to it, as if it was an old print found in a drawer. It features a crab with Dahlia flowers growing in its body.’

About the Artist

For Susanna, printing is Magic. She draws using a Bic Biro because of the texture and how it translates afterwards when printing. Especially on Photopolymer because of the variety of tones that can be achieved as well the amount of detail you can transfer and, even when drawing on the softest of papers, you can still appreciate the grain and the textures of it. Most recently, Susanna has been experimenting with Chine Collé to add colour, create layers and subtle textures – fascinated by the endless possibilities of Printmaking. Susanna works with the dreamy and the surreal, and fascinated with old Encyclopedia engravings especially those related to Fauna and Botanics.
