Prints and objects of Ileana Hochmann are heritage, acquisitions and private collections in Brazil, Argentina, Germany, Denmark and Italy. Two of her works are in the most important collection of prints and works on paper from Brazil: “Monica and George Kornis Collection”.
I followed carefully and systematically Ileana working process: its extensive exploration of the limits of the matrix, the incorporation of the printed surface such as engraving area, the incorporation of the word such as calligraphy and drawing, sensitive exploration of the space between the bi-dimensionalidad and the tri-dimensionality, transparencies and opacity overlays, and finally, the intense assimilation of photography in the construction of a new field of possibilities for screen printing so stigmatized. It is no small and accidental. It is not irrelevant”.George E. M. Kornis (Brazil). Written in Buenos Aires, march 2006
