Lithographic immersion

My residency at SVFK finished at the end of June. I thoroughly enjoyed immersing myself in lithography, and producing a series of images of my newly discovered Danish surroundings. This has been a continuation of my long-held fascination with urban and rural environments – and specifically the quality of light in these places.

I originally intended to focus on the historic buildings in the immediate vicinity of SVFK, however I became more interested in imagery of the natural environment and made lithographs of Bøllemosen and Fanø as well as areas in Copenhagen such as Søndermarken and Frederiksberg Have.

Lithography is a medium that has enabled me to experiment with drawing, to develop different states of the same image. This allowed me to investigate how different qualities of light can be achieved in an image through counter-etching the stone and experimental use of colour. Images of the prints are online here in the print page of this site.
