BRUNO LETI  Australia 1941-   Folio 4

In printmaking, the matrix, is the object that carries the image the artist has made with the intention of making an impression on a piece of paper when it is run through a press at high pressure. Each matrix has a story to tell all of its own. It might be a block of wood, a piece of linoleum, a slab of glass or a metal plate. After 50 years of innovative printmaking, Bruno Leti has a studio full of these old matrices, beautiful objects in themselves, even if they are no longer useful after a print has been editioned.
