Silvio Zesch: LUPOPRINTS

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.

We are very pleased to announce the publication of the artist book “SUMMERPRINT 2”.

SUMMERPRINT 2 is both the title of the second print session, which took place between 4th August and 14th August 2019  in the graphic workshop Priebu 18, as well as the title of the artist’s book, which was created at the same time. Together, Theo Boettger, Jan Brokof, Sebastian Gögel, Christian Henkel and Silvio Zesch worked on various graphics that are printed in various high-pressure techniques, such as wood and linocut, material, stamp and potato printing in combination with screen printing.  In addition to the many multicolored community prints that emerged from the process, each artist also created a single sheet for the book at the print session, which was printed in black and white.

Parallel to the book, an edition of 17 unique prints in the format 80 x 60 cm as well as numerous monoprints in the format 40 x 60 cm were created in cooperation.

The book and a selection of additional graphics will be shown from 22th November – 7th December 2019 in the gallery THALER Originalgrafik in Leipzig and on 14th December 2019  in the Goldene Pforte in Dresden.

We hereby cordially invite you to visit the exhibition(s).

Benjamin Badock, who will most likely be associated with his large-format color wood prints, combines various photos in the SALZ Edition # 11, some of which have been overpainted or collaged, with pattern-like colored drawings.

Lucas Oertel’s small catalog “MALEREI” is the second book published by SALZ-Verlag, in which a selection of various pictures from the years 2012 to 2017 are shown and accompanied with texts by Susanne Altmann and Dr. Holger Birkholz.

André Temple’s artist book “YES OR NO” combines a selection of different drawings of the eponymous series from the years 2008 to 2017, which are summarized in this book for the first time.

SUMMERPRINT 1 is the title of the first print session, which took place in the course of the opening of the new graphicstudio Priebu 18, as well the title of the resulting artist book, which will be presented in the producer gallery Dresden on November 10 2018.

In the period from 25.8. until 2.9.2018, Theo Boettger, Andreas Hildebrandt, Clemens Reinecke, Cornelia Renz and Silvio Zesch met in the recently completed new graphicstudio Priebu 18, in order to inaugurate them with the SUMMERPRINT 1. The aim of the session was from the beginning the teamwork on different various single sheets and on a new artist’s book. The content of the book is kept quite open and as far as the techniques are concerned, the participating artists had at their disposal various high-pressure techniques and silkscreen printing, which were combined with each other. The classic linocut, print with apples and carotts and the printing of other materials, was used and various technical possibilities of screen printing were used. Each of the involved artists created a multicolored single sheet for the book and all together developed in parallel several common sheets, which form the contents of the book. The covers of the books were again treated in a similar way to the single sheets created parallel to the book and thus have a unique character. The book is published by SALZ-Verlag in a limited edition of 20 numbered and signed copies.

Jan Brokof “Tropical Healing”

In his book “Tropical Healing”, Jan Brokof takes us on a journey through the cosmos of his associative and artistic investigations of the differences between the “old” and the “new” world, with which he has been intensively worked since his acquaintance with Brazil. In addition, there are reflections on representations of the stranger at all, on the analogy of capitalism and cannibalism, on formal relations between the depiction of cannibalism from de Bry to the modern Splatter film, and European stereotypes regarding the “tropes” as an ideal and source of danger, like Johannes Schmidt wrote in his text on Jan Brokof’s exhibition “Hans Staden TV” in the Städtische Galerie Dresden 2016.

The artist’s book “Tropical Healing” will be shown for the first time at the exhibition “Tropical Fealing” at the Maurits van de Laar Gallery in Den Haag (Netherlands) from 02.04. Until 30.04.2017.
