Positive/Negative (Print) by Tanja Binggeli

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Tanja Binggeli is a letterpress artist and designer based in Sydney. Tanja has worked as the German Language Coach for Opera Australia. Working with her letterpress, Tanja explores visual representation of both language and performance. The medium of letterpress – by nature of the flowing movement of the press – allows for a process of direct interaction and intervention with the work via numerous repetitions (i.e a high volume of prints). Due to the analogue nature of the process, each print captures a moment that can never be exactly repeated – just as in live performance. Both practices are ephemeral, however, the graphic output of the printmaking is captured by each print.

DESCRIPTION

As with most of Tanja’s work, this positive/negative focuses on the dynamism of the analogue medium. It is a graphic-only work where each image is created by a different interaction between two hand-cut positive/negative forms. The geometric forms betray the manual process by which they were created which appears at times hidden, and at other times amplified in the final image. The result is a series of energetic and one-off prints.
