For her first collaboration with BORCH Editions Mamma Andersson created a suite of three prints, combining woodcut and etching on Japanese paper. After the printing process, she returned to one of the motives, a larger-than-life sculpture of a hand with raised index-finger, and hand coloured its finger nails individually, blurring the line between edition and unique work.
Conceived as three autonomous images, Andersson began regarding the prints as a sort of triptych while working on them simultaneously. Her combination of drypoint and woodcut resulted in an intriguing series of complex prints with skilfully executed, multi-coloured surfaces which highlight the three-dimensionality of the depicted objects and give them an almost skin-like appearance.
