Comment
トーマス(Thomas)とはベルギーのフランツマゼレールセンター(版画のアーティストインレジデンス)で逢いました。大型のジンク版を使った流麗で野太いエッチングの線表現の巧みさに感心しました。また、いわゆる‘描写’するのではない人物表現にも。

I met Thomas at an artist residency for prints in Belgium called Frans Masereelcentrum (Flemish Centre for Graphic Arts). I admire the elegant, flowing etching style that he creates on a large zinc plate, as well as his character portrayals that go well beyond so called “portraits”.
