Artist's description:

From October to December 2017 an artist's project was started, lead by Bremen's famous Kunsthalle: Parallel to their exhibition covering the work of Max Beckmann three selected works (Apachentanz, Vor dem Kostümfest, Selbstbildnis als Clown) were to be interpreted by different local artists. More than 100 different pieces of art were created this way. I did try 4 different techniques with all three images and this is one of the results (just check my profile for the others...).
This is "Clown" made as a 100% recycle engraving: I did use not a classic metal sheet and acids as usually for etchings, but the inside of an empty milk package and scratched my picture there. Then I recycled old newspapers and made my own, unbleached paper from that. Then 10 examples were printed - 5 went directly back to paper-making due to quality reasons, so an edition of 5 was left. Signed and numbered with pencil on the front and embossed with my personal logo every piece is unique (This is why there is just one available now, I'll change all the fotos for the next picture).
If You are interested in the original Beckmann image google Max Beckmann Selbstbildnis als Clown - You will see that the face differs: Seeing the sad face of a very unhappy clown my first thought went to US Politics and though I am not really happy with politics in many other areas of the world I did take Donald Trump's had instead of Max Beckmann's.

handmade paper, empty milk package, colour
