Eric Neunteufel is an artist from Austria, who came to Fish Factory art residency in August 2019 with his wife Angelika Kreilinger. Back home in Austria, they own their own graphic studio called Graphik Werkstatt, Neunteufel Kreilinger. Beginning of Eric´s residency he found a funny picture from the Factory. Picture from local bus drivers from the 1970s. He painted portrait studies from the people in the picture using watercolour. During Eric´s stay, he did multiple artworks using a traditional print working method, etching. He was making the drawings outside among nature into the iron plates and finished his work in indoors. In traditional etching, a metal plate, usually made from copper, zinc or steel, is coated with a waxy acid-resistant substance upon which the artist draws his design with a metal needle an then the plate is then immersed in acid. In Eric´s video, he demonstrates to us, how the process of etching works!
