Yes! We should start training by carrying up small stones and work our way up to, let’s say, and quarter sheet stone. That should be sufficient. We’ll have to be careful not to fall over during the hike, or else our stones will shatter.
Sunrise On The Moon
Lithography on Indonesian paper
Edition of 4
Bad mood day + print #2 in a new series I’m working on atm. (See #1 here).
This one is dedicated to Emily and our upcoming hike to Mt Bolton Brown. In the good old days at Tamarind they made all the trainees scale Mt Bolton with a well-grained stone strapped to their backs, because in general printmaking should be taught more like Shaolin Kung Fu.
Printed on Indenosian paper I got from a good friend years ago. Wallpaper? Wrapping paper? Who knows - it’s nice and strong asian paper, very receptive to ink despite the green print.
Consulting business in Indonesia?
In later stages along the printmaking path the trainee is then initiated to the arts of punching through silkscreens and bare handed copperplate drypoints. But all of that comes after Mt. Bolton. Dort wird die Spreu vom Weizen getrennt.
