Jani Hoberg Biography

Jani Hoberg was born to be a printmaker, with a natural obsessive energy and attraction to problem solving. "I continue to add and subtract line and textures, print the results, and rework the plate until the image is appealing to me. I am concerned with line quality and balance of composition. This visual record of decision making and surprise findings is what I enjoy about this process. My images come from objects or locations that are near and dear to me. They can be from collections of items kept in my studio or a treasure from a vacation spot. I work from  onsite sketches or the found objects themselves."

Jani Hoberg Statement

The Hows and Whys of Drypoint


First of all the name is appropriate, because there is not a drop of liquid used in this printmaking process.

Drypoint is similar to drawing. For those who enjoy drawing, drypoint is a natural way to become involved with the printmaking medium. 

Basically, drypoint is made by drawing on a surface, usually a metal plate, with a sharp tool. I use copper and a steel pointed type of pencil. By using pressure while drawing, groves are made in the copper. Similar to what a plow creates in a field. The "burrs", as they are called, can be felt if you rub your hand over the plate. Before I begin my drypoints, I paint the copper with a coat of gesso. This cuts the glare and makes the image easier to see.

After the dry[point is completed, etching ink is rubbed over the surface of the plate and slowly wiped off with tarlatins (heavy cheesecloth). The palm of the hand is used at the end of the wiping process. The ink is wiped in a pattern that moves the ink into the drawn areas. The ink will stay in the burr areas and wipe off of the smooth areas. 

When the ink is in its proper place, damp paper is placed over the copper plate and it is run through the etching press.

The burrs get worn down after several printings. I keep my editions to about fifteen prints. The plate is reinked and run through the press for each print. The metal plates can be steel faced, which allows for larger editions. 

I print my drypoints with warm black or graphite etching inks.  After the image is printed and the damp paper dry, I color my prints by hand with watercolor.
