Karel Martens uses castaway industrial metal pieces to make unique prints — a formal approach that emphasizes mirroring and ideas of reproduction itself. As both records of artworks and unique graphic experiments, the monoprints thus have a double life and speak to Martens’ ongoing concerns with the reuse of materials and forms.
Karel Martens, b. 1939, is a Dutch typographer and graphic designer. Martens lives and works in Amsterdam.
