Jutta Vollmer and Andreas Vietz are experienced printmakers and active participants in the Cologne art scene. They established the Kolner Graph ikwerkstatt in 1995 as a reaction to the demand for printmaking workshops upon the closure of the Freien Werkstatten (free workshops) in the early 90s.They currently have over 50 members and the workshop provides the means for the realisation of graphic expression for a diverse section of the community, ranging from schoolchildren to established artists.
Andreas Vietz's graphic work (above right) is concentrated mainly
on the process of etching, and after many years of practice he continues
to be fascinated by the often unpredictable nature of the results-traces
on the etching plate for example are integrated into the composition,
thus maintaining experimental characteristics and a visual integrity.
