About Julien Schuster: Engravings from Normandy
This exhibition features engravings from images carved into linoleum and printed on a vintage press. In order to get different colors and textures, the engraving may be printed as many as seven times. In addition, each work is hand colored by the artist. The old French port city of Honfleur and the countryside of Normandy are the inspiration for many of the engravings. Depictions of wine, wind, rain, plants and animals, as well as architecture, are reminiscent of the region.
