‘GRAPHIC ART IS ALL ABOUT FOCUS AND CLARITY—CLARITY IN THE FOREGROUND, IN THE BACKGROUND, AND IN BETWEEN. AND CLARITY AND PRECISION IN THE METHOD AS AN IDEA.’ – GEORG BASELITZ
BORCHs Butik is proud to present a selection of prints from our 25-year long collaboration with Georg Baselitz.
The graphic techniques play a significant role in Baselitz’s work, and have so for many years. It is an integral part of his practice equal, or perhaps even superior, to his painting. Graphics is a manifestation compared to the ambiguity of drawings and paintings, Baselitz often states, and emphasizes the incomparable value of the preciseness and authenticity, as well as the decisiveness and persistence of intaglio prints and etchings. Furthermore, the aspect of reproduction associated with the graphic medium has never been of any importance to Baselitz. Rather than reproduction he is fascinated by the distinctive clarity and intensiveness, and an additional analysis that the technique itself suggests.
