About the Shop
ANDNAND sells artworks, made by Stephanie Pau at a studio in South East London.
Types of things you could come across in the shop:
> ORIGINAL ART - PRINTMAKING
Printmaking is a technique for making original artwork. There are many printmaking techniques. I mainly work with collograph, if you have come across etching and litography, the process is similar. The collograph printmaking involves an artist creating a plate/stencil, using collage (or using metal or stone in the case of etching and litograohy), which is then inked up by hand and pushed through a press manually against wet paper to create the final image. It is a slow and beautiful process. My focus is to use waste materials from grocery to create the collograph plate and the "collections" categories in the shop reflects that.
Edition denotes how many artworks will be produced by the artist using the same plate/stencil. Each of them might have slight variations since the process is done by hand. Sometimes, the variation might be more significant, by artistic choice, even the same plate being used to produce the work - this will be labelled as a variable edition.
There are many kinds of zines. Generally speaking, they are small circulation, self-published text and/or visual work by and/or appropriated by the maker. Often a copy machine like a photocopier and/or a risograph machine, is used to produce copies of the zines. Unlike digital reproduction, the copying process does not reproduce exactly the same results. Limitations, quirks and variations are celebrated.
