BORCHs Butik’s group exhibition Blå (Blue) features Tal R’s most recent print project : Blå Dør and recent monotypes by John Zurier alongside a selection of classic print projects by BORCH Editions’ collaborating artists.
For Blå Dør, a series of six etchings published in an edition of six, Tal R worked with indigo, a particularly deep and rich variety of the colour blue. Indigo is close to the shade of blue used in the traditional colour wheel, and it is said to be one of the six colours of the rainbow. It is extremely difficult to use in painting, as its great depth can only come forth if the surface to which it is applied is extremely matt. This depth and mattedness can best be achieved in the medium of printmaking, where the colour is applied thickly and sits slightly exalted on the paper.
Featured artists: Martin Kippenberger, Takehito Koganezawa, John Kørner, Boris Mikhailov, Ulrik Møller, Knud Odde, Tal R, Morten Schelde, Superflex, Alexander Tovborg, Troels Wörsel, and John Zurier.
