Feel with the eyes
Andrew Donohoe is an Australian artist interested in graphic processes, especially linoleum engraving, a technique that earned him an important award in Australia.
During his residency, he explored new graphic techniques to incorporate into his work such as lithography without water and the monotype, as well as the production of a new series of works inspired by images collected in Buenos Aires during the weeks prior to his residency in ´ace. This new series allowed him to incorporate into his image the vision of nature within the urban environment.
Donohoe, who had already visited the city of Buenos Aires in 2009, explored the city on this occasion as one who explores an exotic jungle, full of plants and insects showing the beauty that the city contains.
