This work documents a self-initiated project

by visual artist Karin Peulen. Made after

observing how rams on the Sint Pietersberg

have a dye daubed onto their undercarriage

so that the ewe's rump is 'stamped' with a

colour after mating, the project had grown

into a partner- ship with Natuurmonumenten

and shepherd Martin Vlas.

.

Experimenting with these 'stamps', Peulen

specially developed a mixture of natural

pigment, wax and linseed oil so that after 

mating a palette of mixed colours and shapes

is created. Her experiment not only provides

insight into the sheep's mating behaviour, but

it also creates a painterly and colourful image 

on the grazing flock.

.

The Risograph prints are made at the van Eyck

Academy's Charles Nypels Lab.
