Marie-Ange Guilleminot, "Nuancier"

 

 

For the Nuancier, French artist Marie-Ange Guilleminot elaborated 119 lithographs on fine Japanese paper, all images from a book on her Hiroshima project. Seventeen different images were pixellized, enlarged, then printed at 5 copies. Each image had 7 variants within the same color family, in a graduated system going progressively from a pale tone to a very dark one. A show of the resulting prints can become a kind of performance piece: the prints can be separated or combined, then hung, in innumerable ways.

 The 'Louvre' project with José Maria Sicilia

 

 

 

In 2004, for the exhibition Contrepoint at the Louvre Museum, the museum, for the first time, invited 11 contemporary artists to create temporary installations in its galleries. For nearly a year, in a unique collaboration with José Maria Sicilia, Michael Woolworth invented a system for printing lithographs on plaster blocks, recreating the patterns on an ancient Islamic rug from the Louvre’s collection. The resulting work, measuring 3 x 9 meters, was temporarily installed where the original is ordinarily on display.

 

Sicilia, during experimentation stage, paints copal varnish on transfer sheet face down on plaster blocks.

FIAC 1999

 

 

Partial view of booth at art fair FIAC in Paris 1999. A very rare and unusual edition of 7 by French painter Jean-François Maurige in woodcut made for the event. The woodcut shapes were printed in and outside of throwaway construction sacks, filled with wall parts.

 

 

Vincent Corpet

 

 

In 2002, Vincent Corpet was invited to the Atelier to work on several print projects for our editions and is seen here working on large monotypes.

Some of the monotypes hanging on studio's walls are in progress.
