Warren Editions is very proud to announce the Edition ‘S’ 2013 artist – Jean de Wet. He is the fifth artist of the Edition ‘S’ project, launched by Warren Editions in September 2009. De Wet collaborated with master printer Zhané Warren to make a three-plate colour aquatint etching in an edition of 55 on Zerkall Intaglio 250gsm paper. Accompanying the edition are 5 Artist’s Proofs, 4 Printer’s Proofs, a Publisher’s Proof, Hors Commerse and Bon á Tirer.
Jean de Wet explains, “…like a travelogue snapshot, Tussen Tyd (2013) captures something of the liminal zone between destinations. Recalled here is the no-place of a forgotten landscape – timeless, but intersected by the shifting paths and journeys of our experience.”
About the Artist
Jean de Wet is an artist and illustrator based in Cape Town, South Africa. With a focus on illustration, comics and books, Jean de Wet’s personal art practice explores in intricate line work, colour and with a certain quirky humour, “the general strangeness of the universe and its fabrications”.
Jean de Wet graduated in 2007 with a BA in Information Design from the University of Pretoria, and has since then taken part in a number of exhibitions, collaborations and creative projects both locally and internationally.
