La Fondation Custodia will present a large selection of prints and drawings by artist Siemen Dijkstra entitled "A bois perdu"

La Fondation Custodia will present a large selection of prints and drawings by artist Siemen Dijkstra entitled "A bois perdu", from February 15 to May 10, 2020. The exhibition presents a selection of the artist’s very best coloured woodcuts, along with drawings, gouaches and watercolours by his hand. The technique of reduction woodcut (à bois perdu) that Dijkstra uses entails each layer of colour being cut out separately from a single piece of wood, then printed successively on the paper. With his large editions sometimes built up out of 10 to 18 colours, the artist evokes, inside his studio, an eloquent outside world.
Address: 121 Rue de Lille 75007
