Just a short note to give you a little taste of a new lithographic series I am currently working on.It’s a black and white series though some pieces will be colored using litho crayon and tush. Each colored lithograph will be a unique piece. The theme is the grotesque of every day life. I’m portraying real and imaginary characters while emphasizing facial and corporal elements.
The lager pieces will be 102 by 61 cm and the smallest ones 50 by 30 cm. I’m printing at San Alejandro Academy of Art and at ISA. I’m getting help from other artists and some ex students. As you can see I am leaving the irregular margins of limestone slabs. I am really happy with the results so far but it’s a lot of work as you are all aware of. Grinding the stones alone is quite harsh but I wanted to come back to lithography. . .
Hope you don’t mind. Cheers, Eduardo
