Notes

Loupe-magnifierI have tried, as much as possible, to give exact measures of print's image, paper and mat. These measures reflect the data at my disposition in 2014, and may not correspond to those of prints at the beginning of my career, as sizes of papers and mats were less stable. The images measures also may vary, some are measures of the image itself, others of the plate, whose bevel is not inked, and the paper size changes after drying. So there are differences, these measures are given as indications.

Early in my learning of intaglio techniques, I was eager to practice polychrome register printing with two or three plates. This technique allows to superimpose the prints of several plates, to juxtapose or layer colours.

My gratitude to those who contributed to almost four decades of creation. 

Fate put etching in my life. By a beautiful summer afternoon in Quebec City in 1976, I was waiting for an appointment at the café La Bastille on Sainte-Geneviève street, to rent an apartment.
