marie louise kold
marie louise kold (born in 1974) is a danish metal artist living and working in sweden and malta. she has made a name for herself internationally with her ability to turn bare metals into highly emotionally charged works of art.
she has developed a technique that is entirely her own, but which has its roots in the tradition of copper printing. working with copper, brass and bronze she engraves and etches the metal, not using it to print with, but transforming it in such a way that the metal itself becomes the actual art object. none of the colors that result from the processes come from paint or pigments. instead, the cuprous metals are brought to life through a patination process using a variety of chemicals. the art that results not only changes depending on angle and light, but also slowly transforms from touch and time.
