TON MARTENS ‘Over, Over & Over’, Riso prints from The Hague in The Atrium, Cork City Hall.

‘Over, Over & Over’, Riso prints from The Hague in The Atrium, Cork City Hall.

At the invitation of Valerie Byrne, director of Cork Printmakers, 45 of the 60 prints were exhibited, from the series Over & Over The Hague in ‘The Atrium, Cork City Hall’ from June 21st till July 7th, 2017. This is one of the eight exhibitions organized around this first printmaking  symposium: First Edition. There were a total of about 120 participants from all over the world: England, The Netherlands, Australia, Germany, USA, Australia and Ireland.

The specialness of ‘my’ place, apart from the architecture, was the approachability of this location. Very similar to the Spui Station in The Hague, where before the complete series has been seen.

During the symposium I was able to highlight my work, which many participants enthusiastically responded to.
