I started making mezzotints in 1987, where I learned the technique during a graphic art symposium in Hungaria. Ever since I have increasingly specialized more in this beautiful black magic art (maniere noir) making my own images looming out of the dark.

Mobius ring

2015

The print shows a ring that can only consist in 3 dimensions. From every point you seem to see 2 sides and 2 edges, but if you follow from a certain point an edge or side, it turns out, when you return, that you have apparently allso seen the other side or edge. In one word, an endless journey.
