William Kentridge is internationally acclaimed for his drawings, films and theatre, and opera productions. He is also an innovative and prolific printmaker, often experimenting with challenging formats and combinations of printing techniques to create highly-worked, intensely atmospheric imagery. This book incorporates new works and exclusive images.His prints, including some new works, range in scale from intimate etchings and drypoints to linocuts on rice paper and canvas measuring 2.5 metres high, and are reproduced on a variety of materials, a tactile approach which is echoed in the design and production of this unique book. An interview with the artist by Kate McCrickard is also included.Kentridge's distinctive use of light and shadow and silhouettes, his concern with memory and perspective, and his absorption in literary texts, are all strongly in evidence throughout this book, which provides new insights into the working methods of this prolific artist.Published on the occasion of the Hayward Touring exhibition A Universal Archive: William Kentridge as Printmaker at The Bluecoat, Liverpool, 7 December 2012 a 3 February 2013; Midland Arts Centre (MAC), Birmingham, 16 March a 2 June 2013; and QUAD, Derby, 15 June a 18 August 2013.An interview with the artist by Kate McCrickard is also included.Kentridgea#39;s distinctive use of light and shadow and silhouettes, his concern with memory and perspective, and his absorption in literary texts, are all strongly in evidence ...
