About Caterina Tedeschini:
Her approach to printmaking resembles to that of a scientific researcher, someone who seeks knowledge and truth for their own sake. Throughout Caterina’s corpus of engravings, natural forms are a recurrent object of study and observation. In her “re-cognition” practice, she re-discovers and preserves one of the most revolutionary craftsmanships in history.

During the workshops, Caterina will give her perspective on etching and printmaking techniques while guiding each of the steps toward the final prints. For her, art is a way to re-establish an authentic dialogue, with no mediations, where the world is mirrored back. It is almost a primitive act of looking, without judgement. Then she adds in memories, history, as well as imagination. She uses etching in a way to gain time and to take advantage of life.
