Hannah Kockx, painter and etcher, has developed her own etching style. She creates special effects by manipulating the plates with colors before the print and perfects the artwork by coloring in by hand afterwards. Every piece of work is unique and done
“Work can never be too methodical. It has to have the atmosphere of a meeting that takes place by coincidence. The dry needle is an engraver ‘par excellance’. It is as pure as the virgin voice of a singer or as smooth as the traces in the ice left by the skater as he passes by”.
Hannah Kockx, also a known drama teacher in the Netherlands, transforms sound into silence in both her subtle and mesmerizing paintings and etchings. She lives and works in Amsterdam and has shown her work internationally for more than 30 years.
