Time Lines Litho, stone lithography series 2016-2017
On their black background with fine white lines, the stone lithographies from the series Time Lines make an interesting contrast with the delicate drawings on japanese paper. The stone lithographies were done on the surface of the stone previous covered with a mixture of graphic asphalt, that provided the black background to make the drawings of fine white lines, done with a sharp engraving tool with a diamond point. The slow process of drawing in the stone take some days, and the manual process of printing requires an absolute concentration, due to the precise amount of ink that is necessary to obtain a deep black without blocking the white fine lines. The limited edition of 10 exemplars was printed on cotton Arches Velin.
The series was selected by F.I.G. Bilbao International Grafik Fair to take part on the Open Portfolio exhibition in september 2016.
In march 2017 the prints will be part of the solo exhibition in Thaler Originalgrafik gallery, in the Leipzig Spinnerei.
The prints were presented in A Cuadros gallery in Madrid, Gabinete de Dibujos gallery in Valencia, Círculo del Arte gallery in Barcelona and Pfaffenhofen Kunsthalle in Munich.
The stones lithographies were selected for the jury of the 8th. Biennale d’arts graphiques de Saint-Maur, Paris, France.
Exhibition: 7.10.17 – 28.1.18
