About these series
Esther van Dijk:
“I use the etching press to make these prints. Each work in the series is unique, I don’t produce editions. I use mixed techniques such as gravure, blind embossing, collage.
I am fascinated by traces that life (unconsciously) leaves behind, like rusty crown caps or boxes that I find attractive when I unfold them. Or an object that has been lying in the street for weeks and contains a whole history.”
