About Bea Mahan
I'm a printmaker artist constantly exploring about materials. My intention is to perceive and graph the process of creating a matrix, hand-pulling a print, creating and handling a paper. The mystery of not knowing exactly the result I am going to obtain makes me feel completely trapped by the process, since it seems to me that materials are alive. The result of this dialogue with materials leads me to emphasize shapes, colors and textures directed to enhance the ability to communicate as elements themselves, rather than a specific meaning. I live in Barcelona, Spain. I work on printmaking, collage and suminagashi at my private studio. My prints have been selected to be exhibited in several Biennials and shows worldwide.
