During Sandano’s March 2017 residency at Art Print Residence in Barcelona, Spain she created two plexi plate prints using a new combination of incision techniques, medium application, etching and chine-colle. Wishing to incorporate a subject already recognised as her imagery (the owl!) with something particular to the place she was in, Sandano has created a pair of anthropomorphic portraits of iconic Spanish artists Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali - as owls - using printmaking techniques acquired while in residence in Spain.
