Nathan Gilson – Etching prints

I am Nathan, I am a print artist from Belgium. I find it hard to give a description of my work. Printing, for me, has become a way to express myself. My work comments on certain mentalities that typify the time we live in; the illusion of happiness, the obsession with pride, religion etc. When I want to print a horse, however, I print a horse. I hope it makes people laugh. I make linocuts – a printmaking technique. A "negative" of the design is carved into a linoleum plate. The linoleum plate is inked with a roller, and then transferred onto paper with a press.
