Karel Martens: Tokyo Papers
A collection of 41 monoprints created by Karel Martens in 2019 and 2020, reproduced on their original size (front and back). Karel Martens: "In 2018 I received a package by mail from Pierre Leguillon with a small pile of used Japanese forms which he had found at a street market in Tokyo. An intriguing collection, printed on thin paper with a rectangular black-blue layer of carbon on the back. Initially in 2019 I started to print on these back sides, but because the overprinting on the carbon layer caused unwanted damage, I eventually started printing them on the front sides as well. The closing image is related to Tokyo in a different way."
