Ugo Gattoni / Sybille’s bath

548249221 (1)

This publishing project began in January 2015 when we met with Ugo Gattoni in Paris. Six months later, at the print shop of the URDLA, he achieved an etching under the friendly supervision of copperplate printer Vincent Brunet. He started his drypoint engraving on a varnish covered copper plate, and spent 7 days working on this dreamlike composition featuring some references to his girlfriend Sybille’s anatomy, as well as Escher’s perspective work. This documentary tells the creation process of this surreal etching and shows the skills of the artisan printer. More NOTCOT.
