David Krut Projects presents Uncovering Ancient Memory – 15 Years of Etchings
by the artist Deborah Bell, one of the great art printmakers in South Africa. This unique
showcase features selected prints from 15 years of collaborative work between Bell and the
David Krut Workshop (DKW) in Johannesburg.
The exhibition celebrates the start of Bell’s collaboration with David Krut Workshop in 2002 starting with the Ulysses series, the first editions printed at the DKW studio, and continuing on to the her most recent collaborationwith US Master Printer Phil Sanders at DKW in 2017.
Bell’s body of work has consistently delved into the realm of self-discovery and her
subconscious memory; also using ancient Western and Africans myths and iconography to
discovering the Self. All the time realising these discoveries through the exploration of
various intaglio techniques and pushing the boundaries of printmaking.
