Barbie Kjar worked on her interpretation of Homer’s Odyssey, in particular the Trojan horse, the siren and Ulysses’ escape from cyclops. The printers, Basil and Mats, were particularly interested in seeing how she inks up her vigorous drypoint plates. Mikael, as a fellow drypoint artist, was also fascinated by her approach to the medium. Barbie kindly used the downstairs studio when she was working with her engraving tool!
