The latest episode of Making a Mark explores the work of Christiane Baumgartner (b. 1967), a ground-breaking artist who has achieved international critical acclaim for her printmaking, choosing to adopt the earliest form of the medium, the woodcut, as her primary means of expression. Curator and director at Cristea Roberts Gallery, Helen Waters, talks to Baumgartner about her formative years spent living in East Germany under communism and how this informed and shaped her work, as well as her choice of medium and subject matter, from her earliest woodcuts, many of which are now housed in major museum collections, through to her latest editions, which are the subject of a new exhibition at Cristea Roberts Gallery.   We also hear from Jonathan Watkins, director of Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, who gave Baumgartner her first solo show in the UK and commissioned her to make Stairway to Heaven, 2019, her largest work to date, Christian Rümelin, an early supporter of Baumgartner’s work and Keeper of Prints and Drawings at the Musée d’art et d’histoire in Geneva, and Gillian Forrester, independent curator and scholar, who has written about Baumgartner’s work. She is the former Curator of Prints & Drawings at Yale Center for British Art in the US. Making a Mark is a new podcast by Cristea Roberts Gallery exploring the relationship between artists and printmaking.⁠ Artworks discussed in the episode can be viewed online via https://cristearoberts.com/podcast/ Image: Christiane Buamgartner in her studio in Leipzig, Germany, 2021.

We hear from Rego, who has been making prints for over 50 years; her son, filmmaker Nick Willing; writer Marina Warner; poet Blake Morrison, whose 1996 Pendle Witches poetry collection inspired a powerful series of prints by the artist, and Professor Paul Coldwell, a master printmaker who worked with Rego over a period of 20 years.     Making a Mark is a new podcast by Cristea Roberts Gallery exploring the relationship between artists and printmaking.⁠   Artworks discussed in the episode can be viewed online via https://cristearoberts.com/podcast/ Image: Paula Rego in her studio in London, April 2021.
