Night came early to this magical place high in the Zhejiang province mountains and the Taoist temple was wrapped in mist. It was quite extraordinary site, very beautiful and serene.

Getting up at 4:00am in the morning affords these kinds of views of the Rui’an region and Zhejiang province mountains. I now have much better understanding and appreciation of the role the depiction of mist plays in classical Chinese poetry and painting. -Endi

Zachlumia
Stone lithograph in grayish black printed from a single stone on Kozo Okawara washi, 61 cm x 99 cm | 24 inch x 39 inch. Produced at Open Studio Toronto and printed by Tamarind master printer Jill Graham. 

Zachlumia is one of the largest lithographs I have produced in collaboration with Jill.  It is one of the images which appears in my animated film Crossing.

The title for this work comes from the old Slavic word Zachlumia, or Zahumlje, which in Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian language means behind the hill. Zahumlje was an independent Slavic medieval principality located in the modern-day regions of Herzegovina and southern Dalmatia.

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.
