About Liset Van Dommelen
All the equipment I needed for my screen prints started to bother me. I love to travel and hike in nature and it was never optional to work there till.....................I started to mono-print. Now I work on all kind of print concepts; photography series and works on my first graphic score Ice Etudes. My mono print experiment started with a print diary in 2012 when I picked up things around me and started to print them. One day I found a dead starling. Since I always have a plastic bags in my purse I picked it up and printed it. The result was amazing and opened a whole new world of options for me. I started to print more and more dead animals. Printing dead animals became a ritual, a delicate encounter never being any closer to the animal world as ever before. My hands explore and caress the animal into a print. Seeing and feeling every little detail. This series is at the beginning at the moment. I will work and explore till I have the feeling the first works are ready for an exhibition . www.ateliervandommelen.nl
