Most of the time, a story is best told only in a specific medium; and a medium always finds its master. Etching is a graphic intaglio printing process of artistic printmaking.
And Bernd Wiedemann is a master of it. He is at home at the interface between text and image, free and applied graphics. His meanings of expression and styles are correspondingly diverse, depending on requirements and subject matter. He works in etching, pastel, pencil, and ink, occasionally acrylic and gouache.
His interests in natural and cultural history are also expressed in his work. To work synergetically, to bring people and topics together constructively, to maintain contacts, to promote exchange and to create opportunities for all are his concerns.
