The theme of Juho Karjalainen’s art is human body. During the last forty years Karjalainen has explored his own aquatint method, in which the image is painted with acid on a resin grounded brass plate. Karjalainens aquatint technique reminds of oriental ink painting or water colour. The aim is lightness despite the multistageous and laborious nature of the technique itself. An successful print, as the artist himself has stated, is like “the floping of wet snow from the roof in the late Winter time”.
