Lithography is a printing process in which artists use greasy drawing materials to make original images on stones and/or metal plates, which are then printed onto paper. This technique does not require any specific skills, and is open to anyone who wants to draw, paint, write and look for textures.
We particularly like lithography as it allows for the most direct translation of drawing; it offers an exciting variety of marks and textures to work with, and the combinations of colours and layers have endless subtleties and possibilities. Our artistic practice in general is very much influenced by this process.
Lithographs differ from etchings, engravings, screen prints and woodcuts in materials and process. For example, etchings and engravings are printed from a metal plate with incised lines, screen printing uses a fine mesh through which ink is pushed, and woodcuts are printed from blocks of wood carved in relief. A lithograph is made from a chemically treated, flat surface, traditionally limestone, or specially prepared metal plates.
In each case, what distinguishes the print as original is that the artist participated directly in the creation of the image.
