Notes by Victor Pasmore

Lshape and images in these aquatints, created together with Valter and Eleonora Rossi of the 2RC in Rome, are extensions of the modern development of painting, which is completely independent of visual representation. Aquatints differ from painting as they are the product of two people, the artist and the printer, each of whom can take on a creative role because the images depend as much on texture and printing technique as on shape, tone and color. The poetic titles of some of these prints are intended as metaphors or analogies capable of creating a mental extension of the images.
