Léa Sautin



I am interested in distortions and transformations when moving from one media or language to another. To create my prints, I take my own interpretation of events from the tales through a chain of processes (woodcut, screen print, sculpture, photography, etching and embossing). Each stage within the process acts as a translation of the stage which preceded it- mirroring the transformation of the original tales through their various interpretations.

The focus is on the ever-changing craft of the storyteller whatever the medium. Knowledge of the original tales is not essential; the intention is that the viewer creates his own narrative through the interpretation of the series of dots, lines and dashes which form the language of printmaking.
