Tomasz Knapik, Black Matter

Tomasz Knapik, Pyrolysis

‘Materialising my art through the medium of printmaking requires a thorough investigation of all its capabilities and restrictions. Intaglio and its mirror image factor interferes with ‘seeing’ during creation. My expectations don’t become a reality until the image emerges at the final act of printing. This process requires me to use my intuition and develop connection with this medium, based on my growing understanding. I have limited my practice to subtractive methods of intaglio. Every physical intervention of the plate leaves a permanent mark. The mark is often irreversible therefore the final impression is doomed from its impact’ – Tomasz Knapik
