Its full name is JFX200-2513. A flatbed printer that my local printing service (Janssen Print in Nijmegen) owns. It’s amazing what they can do with that machine. As a demonstration, they printed a photo on a sidewalk tile in front of their office. After years it is hardly even worn.
Also it is huge. They can print any picture on my 90 x 90 cm canvasses. But it can go much bigger. My friend, dike mystic Wim Kol, prints whole walls on it for architectural projects. And the other day I saw them print the complete navigation boards system for a hotel.
I used JFX200 for my homehaus series too. In Behance I have a little contest, where people can win a print if they can guess the process behind a certain harmony in a series of compositions. Have a look at Behance, you may still be able to enter the contest.
What was I going to say? Oh yes, for the contest prize I asked Chris, the owner of the printing shop, to make a few prints of one of my B-line compositions. He did, but also he left a white rim around the print, looking exactly like a passepartout. I am really happy with Chris and his JFX200. It allows me to produce prints in the easiest way possible. Some of you may think: Isn’t that a bit too easy? But hey, I’m a painter, not a printer.
