Olympia, USA: Simmelink/Sukimoto Editions, 2009-10

Edition of 22 [+8 AP]

Printed by Doris Simmelink, Amérique is a meticulous re-creation of a nineteenth-century Belgian map that Celmins found in a shop. The work is printed on Hahnemühle Copperplate bright white paper, using a 5-plate, 7-color aquatint with CNC engraving process, with pencil and drypoint additions by the artist to mimic the marked and stained original. The facsimile is housed in an antique-style frame designed by Celmins.
