Acquisition Prize, III Exposição de Artes Plásticas da Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, 1986.
My own idea, the idea that drove me into this project was that of taking evidence, using molded paper of a pre-historical engraving made by a pioneer colleague, back in the time when paper was yet to be discovered. It was the end of a cycle.
The word Neolithic is not used here in its historical sense – an era prior to any incision making – but to indicate a new way of stone engraving, of a new print spawned from a lithic source.
For all different reasons, this series remained unpublished. Each multiple has only one or two proofs.
A work from this series was awarded with the Grande Prémio de Gravura da Bienal de Vila Nova de Cerveira in 1982.
