Katsunori Hamanishi Japan Born: 1949, Hokkaido Completed Tokai University in 1973, and has since lived in Tokyo Even amongst thoughtful and hard-working Japanese artists, few choose the technique of mezzotint, which requires particular concentration and effort

Katsunori Hamanishi

It goes without saying that Hamanishi is one of a small number of high-level craftsmen. The early works of this master were mostly in monochrome, but his later works have come to use a number of colours, and he frequently includes fragments of gold-leaf. Hamanishis trademark element, seen in many of his works, is an ear of rice the Japanese symbol of prosperity Hamanishi has participated in numerous international exhibitions and has been awarded with the highest honours on many occasions: the Grand-Prix in Ibiza, the Graphic Arts Triennal in Switzerland, international graphic arts exhibition in Brazil, graphic arts exhibitions in South Korea, China and others. Hamanishis works adorn the collections of such world-class museums as the British Museum in London, the Metropolitan Museum and Museum of Modern Art in New York. Collectors, specialising in Japanese art, consider it an honour to have a Katsunori Hamanishi in their collections

Vladimir Samarin Russia 1926 1994 Vladimir Aleksandrovich Samarin was an artist and master of the highest order. Nonetheless, such praise that is meant to pay homage to and celebrate his work does not come close to describing this remarkable person. Samarin was modest, thoughtful and, at the same time, open with his friends. Some of his most attractive features were the sense of calm, concentrated happiness, joy of creation and sense of life. Stress and speedy results did not attract him. He stood out from others by never posing, instead being natural and tactful in communication, and having a desire to help Sometimes, Vladimir Aleksandrovich seemed to me to be something of a wizard. A simple object that would appear in his workshop could turn into a living thing, inspired and intoxicated with the role in life that it had been created for, such as a flower that he liked, a ladle, a watermelon, a lace shawl...His workshop sticks in my memory as something special for each new engraving by my mentor, and the tiny flat in which he lived with his wife was a place of happiness and comfort. Vladimir Aleksandrovich and his wife, Aleksandra Timofeevna, made an organic whole Vladimir Aleksandrovich wanted to live a long life, like Haydn, and the demands he made of himself as the years passed grew. He postponed his personal exhibition, planned for the beginning of the 1990s, deciding instead to work on for a few more years. But it didnt work out that way... Samarin was a richly talented artist. As a graphic artist he was skilled in linocutting, copper etching, chalcography, pastels, drawing, but his main passion in life was without doubt mezzotint. He mastered this incredibly difficult technique himself, bringing together snippets of information from many sources. On the basis of his outline, his brothers made him an engraving roulette, which would serve him for many years. My teacher made more than 30 engravings using this rare technology. Whether this is many or few, each may decide for themselves. In my opinion, anyone who has been touched by his work will be delighted by the mention of the name Vladimir Samarin

Laurent Schkolnyk France 24.05.1953 Studies of medicine, at the same time: evening classes in the Art school in Nantes, France. I attended the classes of Mr. GUIMEZANE engraving and Mr. PICHON drawing for approximately 10 years I started the black manner in 1976 (for 2 years), then I was attracted by the black manner in colours invented by Jacques Christophe Le Blon in the XVIII century which consisted in the usage of trichromie that is usage of 3 plates of rocked engraving, each carrying a primary colour. That became my specialty afterwards In the beginning Holland painters, like Vermeer de Delft, then I discovered the works of Mario AVATI and Yozo HAMAGUCHI, which probably determined my future direction in engraving Personally, my approach is purely esthetical: to me, art has to do with something poetical and spiritual. Im totally against of provocative art forms, which aims to scandalize or intellectually dominating installations which are from my point of view rather attempts to express oneself artistically and which I consider to be contestable

The idea of devoting an entire festival to one obscure printmaking technique may seem strange to some people, but a mystique has surrounded mezzotint since this tonal engraving process was invented in 1642. For centuries information about mezzotint was guardedly passed down from master to apprentice until the establishment of art schools severed this line of succession and the invention of photography eliminated the need to reproduce painted images in mezzotint. But there have always been individuals who, realizing the mediums potential as a means for original expression, have been drawn to the craft and persevered to put their personal stamp on the process. The prints included in The First International Mezzotint Festival confirm that this tradition is alive and flourishing. Mezzotint is capable of accommodating any artistic style or genre, as illustrated by the prints of artists such as M.C. Escher, Robert Motherwell, Chuck Close, and Vija Celmins. However, with the exception of Caroline Koenderss powerful color abstractions, realism and surrealism dominate the Festival. Quite a few artists use the mediums ability to render dramatic lighting effects that impart a narrative quality to the work. Despite commonalities the diversity and originality of images are remarkable. With so many skillfully executed prints and unique visions the task of awarding prizes was daunting. The preliminary jurors nominated five finalists in each of four categories from which I could choose the prizewinners. Had some of these artists been nominated in different categories, the outcome might

Carol Wax Head of IMF jury panel

have been quite different. The agonizingly close race for the Grand Prize ultimately resulted in Marc Frisings poignantly nostalgic, sensitively engraved dioramas winning. Seung Yeon Kims massive nightscapes, which artfully capture the artificial glow of urban life, earned his prints the Prize for Adhering to the Traditions and Skills of Graphic Work. I was somewhat confused by the nomination of James Groleaus work in the category for Originality and Breaking Classical Boundaries as I see his haunting, evocative imagery as achieving the highest level of traditional mezzotint and therefore deserving of whatever prize I could give him. Art Wergers technical mastery is so complete he transforms everything from portraits to landscapes to cityscapes to dreamscapes through mezzotint, making him more than deserving of the Prize for Full Correspondence of Technique and Imagery. Other artists some nominated for prizes, some not should also be mentioned. I was moved by the eerie figures in Earling Valtyrsons prints, the intricately collaged layers of Ivo Moseles images, Pekka Hokkanans science fiction-like treatment of psychological issues, and Francisco Soutos ability to simultaneously convey infinitely vast and exquisitely minute universes in one print. It was inspiring viewing mezzotints by artists from such diverse backgrounds and countries, many whose names and work were unfamiliar to me. It reaffirmed my belief that mezzotint remains a relevant medium for visual communication, even as newer, more immediate techniques seduce emerging artists. Im honored to be in the company of such talented colleagues. Congratulations to all.

Kath Rutherford When I was introduced to mezzotint twenty eight years ago, I bonded with the technique immediately...I loved everything about it, including the huge time commitment. Drawing directly on the plate with only sketches to guide me, I hope to share a quiet wit, gentleness, a lyrical fluidity of form. Most of my works are small...most subjects

could be held in a hand. My images are carefully constructed and precisely detailed compositions inspired by humourous interpretations of proverbs, folklore and weather related sayings. In a world inundated with shocking and anxiety- laden images, my goal is to share the pleasure of creating the work, and to help people lighten up... smile

Francisco Souto USA 18.02.1973 Education background B.F.A Herron School of Art. Indiana. USA M.F.A Ohio State University. Ohio. USA Sphere of artistic interests My primary focus is works on paper. Prints, Drawings, photographs and hybrid prints Experience in mezzotint I have being making mezzotint for the last 10 years. My current artistic investigation is the combination of mezzotint with digital printing technology Artistic credo I use art as a medium of mapping myself. This emotional disclosure testifies and corroborates the idea of art as a reflection of my own experiences. My work reflects my perspective on the world; therefore, it becomes a social interaction with those who respond to the work rather than a self-indulgent act. When I make art I dont want it to simply function as way of making an image, I wanted art to be a way of thinking through an image. Art is for and of something A testimony of life lived In this fashion, the work becomes a balance between two dissimilar worlds. At one end is the admiration for historical processes, at the other, my current, personal experiences. This set of associations serves as a rhetorical junction to define the harmony of past and present. I am interested in how historical processes embody the nature of my aesthetics and how my current personal experiences signify my identity. The equilibrium of this temporal dichotomy serves as visual and conceptual catharsis, which constantly recalls dormant feelings in my memory My commitment with the technical narrative sets the foundation for developing the form. Images become witnesses of process and process becomes the ignition for images to materialize and to form the conceptual narrative. By means of exploring myself through the medium, I am satisfying the longing through the sensuality of the material and posing questions of how the resources of printmaking may be used, as its processes are derived from the very history that they seem to carry

The persistent fascination in using art as a formative vehicle to identify my nature has led me to create a new body of work where the subject matter is recontextualized and disjointed by pairing objects in sequence of optical moments. Small sections of clouds and galaxies a blurry family picture paired with objects of time and nature function to me as a threshold of consciousness because they make emotional associations rather than just optical juxtapositions. These images are recorded evidences of my own daily life; they recall memory fragments in an emblematic way that could be confused at first but become expressive by reason of its optical mesmerization. In this approach, this new body of work is a combination of many things including mezzotints, drawings, photographs and digital printings. Ultimately, such a range of media is the result of pursuing a view of art as a formative vehicle and a body of work as a series of ideas pursued in different media

Guy Langevin My work is based on duality between fugitiveness of light and moment, and the perenniality of impressions that people, situations and events can make in our mind. As this duality, the work rocks between precision and blurry images. Haziness may be, sometimes, the more accurate way to express an idea

Duality does not mean contradiction. Memory and forgetfulness are both sides of the same medal, as life and death. They are indivisible. Light needs shadow to be really appreciated and remembrances, to be magnified, find in forgetfulness a perfect companion. Life, as memory, is fugitive

Majla Z. Zeneli My graphic works speak about images outside us and inside us. It is like hearing the polyphony of millions of sounds and voices from which one has to choose at least two, at most four voices and make of them

a minimalistic, beautiful peace of music. For me each of this chosen voice or sound is in the shape of a color. The strategy of constructing, composing of the work will be the same as in music

Kaori Suzuki The theme for my work is always based on a form of life that pretends to be complete silence. Strength and fragility coexist there. I know a piece is finished when it exhibits life and death, action and rest, something in-between sounds, bustle and tranquility, signal of life,

pulse, stillness, or a slight movement in the vacuum. In other words, it is the space in time and air a second before a maestro draws the baton, or the moment from the time a pianist sits down and places his hands on top of the piano-the sound of the

atmosphere already has been transformed before a note is even played. My work cuts out sound from complete silence, stillness, and apprehension. It is exactly the beginning regardless of what proceeds next. Even if it is an interim, it already brings calm pleasure

without a hint of negative energy. I ask myself, What is the meaning of 'silence'? What is the beauty in life? I am in a journey to create artwork with the help of the warmth of copper, strength with the pressure and delicacy of Intaglio, and the beauty of monochromatic color. The roots of my techniques are monochromatic photography and Japanese Suibokuga (black ink brush painting) and I combine copper etching and experimentation of ink compound

Ray Dennis Rocking the ground of a Mezzotint plate is a discipline which requires considerable physical and mental tenacity if that uniquely black matrix is to be achieved, but when the image starts to reveal itself out of the darkness through our scraping and burnishing there is the reward for the investment; like a mystical apparition! Then to the final revelation: that magical moment when the first proof comes off the press... unbeatable. Recently my children have appeared in my work reflecting my own nostalgic sense of being a small child trying to make sense of the world using all my tactile and intellectual senses. For me; the deep velvet black of Mezzotint is the best metaphor for the yet to be discovered the unknown or perhaps fear of the unknown. As an adult, I connect the same black with a desire for quiet contemplation and a sense of the stuff of dreams and sensuality. I believe strongly, that the technical knowledge of Printmaking processes generally and Mezzotint process in particular deserves to be preserved and passed on to future generations of young artists and for them to feel the same passion for it, as I know we do!

Julie Niskanen I utilize printmaking processes that bestow an invaluable vocabulary of marks to feed my ideas and work. Mezzotint is a medium perfectly suited to the minutiae of depicting natures elegance. The velvety, endless black background lends a depthless drama to detailed renderings of natural havens such as Sanctuary and Refuge, the hopeful scattering of seed in Dispersion, the precious, intimate moments in the Solitude series, and the frailty of forms such as the

Chinese lantern that pervades my work. I also combine mezzotint with other intaglio techniques in multiple-plate prints to take advantage of the strengths of each, and subtly refer to the cyclical rhythms in nature; the effect works quite well in Renewal and Illusionary Reflection, for instance. Working with a variety of methods allows me to explore the benefits of each, and keeps me energized about each piece I develop

Linda Whitney In my art making process is far more important than end results. The mezzotint process; the rocking, burnishing, proofing, and printing; become a very spiritual endeavor. The images are usually narrative and are developed in a connected series. The narratives, be they playful, historical based, or pure wishful thinking, all have birth in my environment, my research, or belief systems. I am a visual learner and am directionally dyslexic... so working backwards on a metal plate comes naturally to me!
