About the work of Caroline Koender(1961), graphic artist. A whole world is hidden behind the abstract images in the work of Caroline Koenders. Her prints may seem just a collection of black dots or circles, but in essence those forms create a silent world one wants to live in. An artist looking for eternity and finding it nearby. Behind black hides white, behind darkness, light. The mezzotint is a graphic technique that works in reverse: one starts from black. The image looms up from the dark copperplate after endlessly scratching and scraping it. This way the artist creates a beautiful velvety print. The half tones made by Caroline Koenders create an atmosphere of a mysterious world.
