Chemical Transfer Prints by Enrico Giori

The gallery of images below showcases two series of prints created using a transfer printing technique, which involves transmitting images from one surface to another, whether by rubbing, tracing, pressing, or any other manual technique using chemical substances such as wintergreen oil or acetone. The first four prints, from the series Human Dimension, explore the human perspective of the inhabitation of a contained space, whilst the second four prints, part of the series Verità Scomoda (Uncomfortable Truth), examines the controversial role of the housewife in the contemporary era by examining a series of articles from Italian newspapers describing homicides committed by housewives who were seeking revenge on their abusive and manipulative husbands. The ethereal and worn out look of the prints is interesting, and is a key feature of this contemporary printmaking technique.
