In my case, the process of engraving the plate itself is the most exciting part. I don’t understand the chalcographic techniques as the imitation of other techniques, or just as a way of producing serialized works. Nowadays, with the proliferation of all kinds of digital imaging systems, this would not make any sense. When I use a traditional intaglio technique I look for that quality which I perceive as unique. The engraving is, in my case, what arises from a process of many errors and unexpected events. For this reason, I need to make my plates personally.
