El Anatsui & Factum Arte Create Large-scale Intaglio, Collages “Eclipse” series

El Anatsui returned to the Factum Arte studios in early November to create large-scale collages with Factum´s print-makers Michael Ward and Constanza Dessain.

The session with Anatsui was a very successful culmination of a year's work in the intaglio studio, where a series of prints were made from high-resolution scans of Anatsui´s wooden workbenches, once used to create his vast sculptural bottle top works.

Many one off collages were made from printed material and several editioned suites were made from the plates - particularly impressive are the "Eclipse" series of 13 variations.
