West Coast Vista


SKU: LIT008 Category:


‘West Coast Vista’ is hand printed from limestone with only 30 prints produced.  Each work is the same with subtle variations between each print due to the artist’s hand.   Therefore, each work is an original i.e. not a digital print.   See description below or view this process video

Lithography is the oldest form of printmaking and is the closest form of printmaking to the hand drawn mark.  The process involves grinding down a slab of limestone.  A grease-based pencil or paint is used make marks on the stone.  A chemical solution is used to etch the image into the stone.   Ink is then spread onto the limestone with a rolling pin catching the areas where the oily drawn mark has been etched – because ink repels water the stone constantly has to be kept wet (using a sponge).  Cotton rag paper is then placed on top of the image and put through the press using high pressure to press the ink onto the paper.  Small editions of 30 and under are produced.
