Collaborating with the David Krut Workshop since 2016, van Schalkwyk has produced a series of abstract prints exploring colour and gestural mark-making that challenge the possibilities of printmaking. DOLCEFARNIENTE showcases a new series of prints created in the workshop and his wider experimental practice, spanning a number of disciplines including performance, video, installation and sculpture.

DOLCEFARNIENTE translates as “the enjoyment of idleness”, the sweetness (dolce) of doing (faro) nothing (niente).
