‘Farben’ is an artists’ book which is the result of an experiment to introduce color in an oeuvre that consists for the most part of variations in black and white. The book is a compilation of various types of drawings; geometric compositions, borrowed from existing book covers, posters, and paintings, numerous line drawings based on erased ‘to-do-lists’, and ‘sketches of drawings’ by Marc Nagtzaam. As with its predecessor ‘Zeichnungen’ Nagtzaam combined his material by printing it in different layers on a Riso duplicator at the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht. The result is a careful composition of drawings that became a new work in itself. Printed in a limited edition of 200 copies, numbered and signed.
‘Farben’ is published by Roma Publications
