Uni started up again last week, so I've been pretty busy with studio work. Lithography will be the most time consuming class this semester. Last night I was graining stones:
It looks a bit tedious, right? Well it is! Graining a stone takes several hours.
In the video I'm pouring corundum grit on to a wet limestone slab. Then I use another piece of wet limestone and pass it over the bottom stone in various patterns to remove the previous image off the stone.
I will explain more about processes in lithography at another time, since I have an essay that I should finish tonight.
One more thing: my next solo show will be opening Friday, 14 August 2009, at Gnosis. More details and flyer later.
