Welcome

We are very happy to announce the publication of two new books by SALZ-Verlag and would like to introduce them briefly here.

SALZ Edition #12 │ Sebastian Gögel – SCHOCKSTARRE

It´s a feeling │ M.I.A. (Marie Aly, Isabelle Borges, Anna Leonhardt)

 

Sebastian Gögel describes the genesis of his book, which appears in the SALZ Edition as number #12, as follows:

“The watercolors are the daily finger exercises with brush and paper. Here the photographic gaze is transformed into painting. Through the realistic reference, I try to track down the otherworldly and what makes the fantastic in everyday life. I would like to depict my experience horizon with narrative moments.
How can I make sure of my position in the here and now and how relevant are images? In my other paintings, imaginary spaces and figures play the game of narration. The realism of the sheets contrasts with you and I see a connection between my experienced reality in the opposite way. The photographic gaze is the document of the present, in it today’s things that concern me can be negotiated. Sensitive and political things become visible. The transformative process of painting is like a thought process in which the state of mind mutates into abstraction.”

“It’s a feeling” is the first book by Berlin based artists collaboration M.I.A. at SALZ-Verlag. The painters Marie Aly, Isabelle Borges and Anna Leonhardt have worked together on artists books during the lockdown, in which an intensive dialogue took place through different techniques and elaborately designed. They have now reproduced a selection of these works in silkscreen. After spending several days in the printing workshop Priebu18, a book has been created that gives a unique insight into the current work of the artists, but also contains aspects of our time. The direct juxtaposition of the individual sheets brings the artists closer to one another than ever before.

We are very happy to start our tenth year of publishing with a very special and extraordinary book and hereby announce the publication of the artist book “LUPOPRINTS” by Silvio Zesch.

Silvio Zesch already started working on this artist’s book in 2018, in which he printed various motifs with conventional bubble wrap, which is probably more likely to be known as packaging material. The origin of the idea arose from the search for an adequate material in which raster images can be reproduced more easily in analogue printing. The motifs range from classic comic characters such as Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Batman, to various adaptations from pop art classics such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein to a wide variety of stereotypical image motif and all of them are  images of the www.  and playfully strung together to form a kind of storie.

In addition to the original purely halftone images, the intensive examination of the new print carrier, the bubble wrap, also resulted in various other variations of stencil printing or the colored over and under rolling of various prints, which continually added to the spectrum of this very special printing technique extended.

Everything was printed by and by hand, using different offset colors on coated offset printing paper.

The book and a lot of other LupoPrints from 2018 – 2020 will be shown for the first time in an exhibition from 30.1. to 28.2. 2020  in the “goldenePforte” in Dresden.

We hereby cordially invite you to visit the exhibition.
