Artistic transposing from painting to printmaking

Tamara Pintarič (2019) Artistic transposing from painting to printmaking. Diploma thesis.

    The line in art illustrates movement in space. For each line, to be painted, drawn or stamped, has it's own character. In my diploma thesis I will be focusing on the expressive possibilities of an active line in the graphic technique of soft coating, also called vernis mou. In addition, I will also present one of the specific learning methods in art education; the method of transposing, which lets us experience and understand the visual problem, and helps us find a creative and unique solution (Tacol, 2003). In the beginning I will formally analyze two paintings made by Van Gogh. I am especially interested in his painting gestures, lines, colors, shapes, composition and color contrasts. Afterwards, I will transpose these analyzed art elements and relationships between them into my own graphics. I will also present graphic printmaking, deep printmaking, etching and the graphic technique of soft coating or vernis mou. I will describe the entire process from the sketch, the preparation of the matrix, the acid etching process, to printing and drying graphic prints. I am also interested how the lines I draw with pastels, while I am sketching, can remain as similar as possible, once they are transposed into graphic. That's why I chose the technique vernis mou, because it allows the lines to be extremely soft, sensual, almost as if drawn by chalk. Then, by using a comparative analysis, I will be able to tell what has been lost in the process of transformation from painting techniques into graphics, and what has been gained. I want to explore how to use another artist's work as a motive for my own art. I am also curious how to create an abstract, illusionistic space and a sense of movement only with lines and the help of colour.
