These large size paper cut-outs are the culmination of several years of work in the medium on a smaller scale, for ceramics, artist’s books, posters, etc.
The works are framed according to archival standards, with ultra-violet screen glazing for protection. The wood frames are unique and of high quality with a profile that is 10 cm wide and 4,5 cm thick, from solid old-growth cherry wood, black matte lacquered.

A strip of paper or metal is folded into an hexahedron (triangular dipyramid or dual pyramid). The flat surface of the paper is knotted into itself to become a three dimensional solid. Using the dipyramid as a module, the artist builds new modular units. These are then sewn together and used to create large sculptural works.
Zoetype is a printmaking process that involves the transfer of images from a worked metal plate on to the paper, via a woven cloth matrix, either directly or by re-transfer on to a second metal plate.
This process gives the print a much greater range of tonal and textural effect. The matrix can give a sharp relief with either its printed or unprinted side or the two maybe used in combination.
This technique was developed by Zoe Keramea in 1987.
Zoetypes are unique prints.
