Spomenberg lithograph was produced at the Open Studio Toronto during an extended artist residency and collaboration with Jill Graham from 2008 through 2012.  It was the first major 2-color lithograph I produced from two stones.  The image serves as the backdrop for the final scene in my animated film "Crossing".

Printmaking Off the Beaten Track, a new book by Richard Noyce, published by Bloomsbury Publishing London, with excellent essays on a diverse group of artists working in the field of print media is just out. Spomenberg and Silverberg lithographs, produced at the Open Studio Toronto and printed by Jill Graham, are featured and discussed in the context of my animated film "Crossing".

Noyce’s book features essays about the work of 54 artists from the Middle East, India, Pakistan and Nepal, to the Eastern Mediterranean, Southeastern Europe and the Balkans. This rich and compelling resource reveals the innovative and exciting approaches of printmakers around the world and gives readers the opportunity to compare art from different places, challenging our understanding of the means and forms of expression in printmaking, and its place in the contemporary visual arts.

This mid-size stone was used to produce the first state of the Hälfteberg image.  After we printed the first state in a small edition of 20, the image was again printed, first in gray-black, counter-etched, redrawn (as in the last slide) and double printed with tinted-transparent brownish gray on top of the existing image.  This created a subtle buzz effect, near photographic in appearance, and was used in one of the iterations for my animated film, Crossing. Pin-registration was used and strapped around the stone (as seen in the image 1, 3, 4) to achieve and maintain tight registration.
Stone lithograph printed in gray-black and transparent brown-gray on Kozo Okawara washi, edition of 25. Produced at Open Studio Toronto and printed by Tamarind master printer, Jill Graham.
