In this episode, Britt Lawton speaks to Roxy Kaczmarek, artist and printer from the David Krut Workshop. Roxy gives us insight into her journey in the arts, shares her experiences from working in various printmaking workshops, her inspiration from nature and environmental surroundings, working in her home studio, upcoming work and so much more!
In Roxy’s own artistic practice, she is focused on the relationship between humans and nature. After receiving a BA (Fine Art) from UCT’s Michaelis School of Fine Art in 2012, Roxy worked at Warren Editions Print Studio as a printer and studio manager and has interned at the London Print Studio and Amsterdam’s Grafisch Atelier. During her Masters’ in Technology research at the university of Johannesburg in 2019, she experimented with etching, cement, and plaster combinations.
Currently living in Johannesburg, she has shifted her practice towards screenprint and has a functioning screenprint studio at home. This has been used for DKW projects, most recently having completed an edition with illustrator Zhi Zulu, multi-media works by emerging artist Pebofatso Mokoena for Internal Probes, silkscreen printing for multiple process prints with Maja Maljević and the Latitudes Limited silkscreen project created for the first edition of the Latitudes Art Fair in Johannesburg. Roxy also teaches printmaking at the University of Johannesburg and is a member of The Printing Girls Collective.
