About The Artwork

The cities and the time. This new series of etchings is a continuation of my previous series "the invisible cities", inspired by the novel by Italo Calvino. Both series are not about cities in themselves but on an underlying theme. In the first series it is the thinking and ways of life of the people who form a city. In this case it is about change and the time that elapses. In these etchings, different times can be seen in one image: past, present and future. To create this image I use multiple etching plates that I print over each other. I made a number of plates specially for this, but I also use plates from previous series. This creates very complex compositions. In these etchings you can look through the cities and buildings, giving you the impression that the different times coincide. The fascinating thing about time is that we cannot understand it even though we still have so many clocks. Time can go slowly, slip through our fingers, be over or never come. What is especially fascinating to me is that the experience of time also changes as you get older. I live in the here and now but at the same time feel the past and the future. I am the child I was, I feel the presence of people who are no longer there and I already see a glimpse of the old woman I am about to become. It does not feel frightening but like making peace with time.

Annemarie Petri (The Hague, the Netherlands, 1965) is a very versatile artist, experienced in painting, sculpting, and etching. She uses her impressive technical skill to evoke a picturesque and melancholy world all of her own. Her artistic range within this theme is wide, from bizarre to humorous, from alien to familiar. The loving concentration with which she creates her meticulous pictures is remarkable.
