Connected by the analytical concept and primary problematics of the medium of graphics, these 30 works from eight series of works were created in 1977, Today, almost four decades since their creation, they have never been exhibited in full, these series are not only seen as part of some relatively far artistic history, but also as a still very fresh and permanently valid characteristic of language and medium of graphic art.
Kipke on the characteristics of these prints: "The procedures with graphic paper, metal or stone bases and graphic paints are very close to primary painting procedures, but the result is only in the domain of graphic experience, more or less removed from the illusionist effect."
