Leda Catunda
'My choice of colour is always very simple, very direct. Therefore, it bears a strong affinity with popular art. Primary colours, without much elaboration. I`m not interested in the idea of good painting. It is useless as far as my work is concerned.' - With all eyes on Brazil, Manifold Editions offers a series of 8 polymer-gravure prints in edition of 60 by the Brazilian artist Leda Catunda. Born in São Paulo, Brazil, in 1961, she is one of the celebrated 80s generation of Brazilian painters along with Beatriz Milhazes, Ernesto Neto, Adriana Varejao and Iran do Espirito Santo. Early on in her career Catunda developed her unique approach merging painting, collage and sculpture in her work, exploring what she calls 'poetics of softness' Catunda spent two weeks in a print workshop studio in London working on this project. She decided on the title Projeto Night Club because of the vibrancy of colour and movement in the prints, which reminded her of the dynamic and lively nightclub scene in São Paulo.

Polymergravure block print
A Polymer Gravure block print is a print impression taken from an etching plate that has been made by photo processing. The artist creates the artwork on acetate. This could be hand drawn or a photographic image printed onto acetate either photographically or digitally.To make the plate, it first needs to be given a light sensitive surface either by using photo-polymer film or using a commercially prepared plate. The image is then exposed to the plate by shining ultra violet light through the acetate. The UV light hardens the photo polymer, clear areas of acetate will allow more UV light through making the polymer harder, dark areas of the acetate allow less UV light through so the polymer remains soft.The soft polymer emulsion is washed away to create an ‘etched’ level on the plate. The plate is then inked, wiped and printed in the same way as an etching.
