Nature-inspired Printmaker Marisa Keller 3: Edge

Today we look to the edge with Marisa Keller and jump in with the dynamic textures and imprints she has created on paper.
Marisa’ Inspiration:
MK: On a trip in Australia in 2006, I was inspired by the boundaries and transitions of land into the sky. From this idea, a new series of work started in 2007 and is still continuing.

The Print Output:
MK: Created in square panorama format, the unique printworks are done using a mixture of printmaking techniques: etching, aquatint, relief printing, embossing and hand colouring with watercolour. Pressed flowers, collected leaves and other natural materials are used to create delicate textured shapes.

MK: A new series of the Watergarden emerged from earlier ‘Edge’ works in 2011 emphasizing the detailed etching textures and imprints of the natural objects. By now, I was more intrigued by the process of building up the image using print techniques than the idea of creating an edition. Most of these pieces are therefore one of a kind works on paper.

Today’s Quote on ‘EDGE’:
“Life is a travelling to the edge of knowledge, then a leap taken.”
