ARTchipel: Christiane Baumgartner
Art blog ARTchipel has been covering an interesting artist today whose works are woodblock prints based on video stills, retaining the scan-line effect:
Christiane Baumgartner’s work deals with the convergence of speed and standstill. Her choosen format is monumental monochrome woodcut taken from her own video stills. She combines the earliest and the latest reproduction processes: woodcut and video. Speed and the passage of time are recurring themes throughout her work. The notion of ‘time’ is also embodied in her artistic process, which involves the lengthy and painstaking medium of handmade woodcut, with all its inaccuracies and mistakes.
