Ann-Kerstina Nielsen (DK)
Danish artist Ann-Kerstina Nielsen was born in 1965. The etchings and graphical works of Nielsen are made with great environmental concern. ”Over the years I have been working on the idea of recycling and recycled materials. For example old calendars, packages, recycled paper and Plexiglas I found in my neighborhood”. In the making of these the prints, Nielsen also shows concern for the environment. ”When I work on cardboard and Plexiglas, I completely avoid etching. Instead I try to feel my way to the right expression by experimenting”. These experiments have led Nielsen into alternative ways of processing and coloring the graphics, and some of her latest graphics also includes digital prints.
