La Pareja / The Couple
Janette Bossard – Noberto Marrero
Edition of 5 with 1 artist’s proof 17cmx22.5cm, 7″x9″ 2013 Estudio Gráfico Guanabo
Married for 17 years, Janette and Noberto have completed their first collaboration together- La Pareja.
La Pareja opens as a concertina with five collaborative etchings popping off the page using humor and irony to bring to light the diverse themes common to anyone in a relationship including: communication, tolerance, and passion.
Hidden behind the etchings are small chine collé woodcuts creating representations of the five themes.
Noberto did confide in me that making this book was a difficult process.
