Photopolymer etching on 300 grams Hahnemühle etching paper
Original Print, 13 x 18 cm
Fear, amusement, joy, bewilderment or dread? It is entirely up to the individual's mood, on how Jacob Putker's work is perceived. He combines digital and traditional techniques to produce images which are playful and sinister, nostalgic and magical.
His preferred medium is photopolymer, or solar plate, etching. This technique is a non-toxic way of etching which allows for photorealistic depictions, rather than an imposed meaning to his work.This artist knows very well how to trigger your feelings, tangle your mind and unearth all the strangers lingering in your long forgotten dreams.
