Polargraph print with handcoloured areas.
Patrick Wagner is a real print virtuoso. Not only has he these last years been teaching printmaking at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Stockholm, he has focused his own oeuvre to a large extent on printmaking. He has conducted printmaking projects in collaboration with artists all over the world and acted as a printmaker for a number of distinguished artists. Patrick Wagner is educated at the arts academies of Helsinki, Bergen and Kiel.
Within the framework of the artist’s interest in prints, studies of medieval small-format prints are included. In these, are often found ”dance macabre” or dance of death motives, in which skeletons are shown seemingly living like human beings – they dance, eat, drink, maybe they even have a dog. Wagner has brought this medieval motif into his contemporary artistry, and "living", humorous skeletons are a recurring motif in his world of images.
