Aino-Kaarina Pajari - Carborundi Retrospective Exhibition

8.12.2007 - 10.2.2008 Holvi

Carborundum is a printmaking technique that landed in Finland in the late 1980's, where the printmaking plate is painted with a mixture of glue and carborundum sand. My first works with this technique were prints made from thickly painted plates with undiluted paint. With time, the prints have become more delicate. Controlled coincidences frequent in my current work. I might think of a certain colour; the sodden chill conferred by an autumn storm, a beach gilded orange by the sun, a longing that paints the sky black... The paths I treaded with my dog have transformed into abstract patterns. I moved to Jyväskylä in 1996, and started working at the Jyväskylä Centre of Printmaking. The exhibition celebrates my 10-year anniversary in the city and offers an overview of my "Carborundi". Text by Aino-Kaarina Pajari.
