Born to a French-American family in 1909 the Goetz painter, to overcome the difficulties of engraving, began looking for a technique that does not use water.

He developed in 1967, after 10 years of effort, carborundum etching.



Carborundum (silicon carbide) is a combined emanation of silicon and carbon, which is crystalline in nature and is similar to coal.

It is in the form of more or less fine-grained and has the distinction of strongly harden the materials with which it is mixed.

The recorder deposited on the metal or other support (plexiglass, ...) a paste of plastic resin (or other) and carborundum grains. Once dried, this very hard material has a relief. It is therefore not to incise a plate. The panel is used here only as a support for the added material, which is modeled asperities recessed and raised. This material has the advantage of retaining the ink with a wide variety of shades and structures.

From thereon, the printing process is identical to that of intaglio with the exception:

- The ink can be carried out both on the reliefs in the hollow,

- The shape given to the "matrix" smashes the paper and prints it in the press effect (up to 17 tons of pressure) as well as its negative colors applied by hand,

- The paper in thicker tank (600 gr) and humidified beforehand to soften it, is



The Goetz process used by painters is growing worldwide.

Variations of application and its technical possibilities are almost endless. Each artist reinvents and adapts the Goetz process open to the most diverse expressions.

Miro, Clave, Papart, Coignard, Hélénon, Brisson, including Cottavoz have applied or are still working with it always had innovation process.

Naturally it is possible to combine the carborundum etching with all other printing techniques.

Biography of RENARD Emmanuelle:

Emmanuelle Renard was born in 1963.

She lives and works in Paris.

Painter extreme, Emmanuelle Renard puts its voltage painting, exploring the distortion of forms, the body lines which disintegrate while incarnating material, becoming devouring. The line is both cut disjunction while winding in a curve that makes the tentacle possession. Its colors it produces itself with pigments, it gives about him a presence in both physical and very allusive, embodying this in-between by Baroque buildings where the hot juxtaposes the cold, where the hot s' to expose the ice. In this fight on canvas where the line and matter greatly clash, there is no room for indifference.

Emmanuelle Renard started painting very early. She signed her first solo exhibition in 1985 in Vallauris, where she grew up. Since then, she regularly exhibits in Paris (galleries Vidal Saint Phalle, Suzanne Tarasiève ...), Europe and the United States. Inspiration Emmanuelle Renard finds its sources in Paris and Pondicherry, India, where she lives and works.
