Experiment in printmaking

I’ve been learning a few new printmaking methods on my course at Leith School of Art. Recent methods relate to working with simple tools and materials because the course is temporarily online until lockdown restrictions are eased.

This week we learned ‘kitchen litho’, a form of lithography using silver foil, wax crayons, Coca Cola, vegetable oil and oil paint. Here is an image of a plate and of two prints.

Inspired by High Rise by J G Ballard (1975), this book contains rubber stamping and monoprints of imaginary brutalist high rise buildings. The typed text is key words taken from the book, but breaks down and eventually collapses as does the life of the inhabitants of the fictional high rise.
