Hello friends ,
We have just finished our studies in printmaking – Rob at the Royal College of Art in London, and Alice (after finishing RCA last year) completing a year of specialist training in Lithography at The Tamarind Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Over the Christmas break we drove for a month together across New Mexico, Arizona, a bit of Utah, California and back across into Texas. Back in Albuquerque we made a collaborative lithograph inspired by some of the amazing landscapes we had experienced, colouring some of these by hand with colour pencils to give more variety and detail. Excited by this way of working, we continued the project after Rob returned to London in January. Alice made two new drawings and posted these to Rob, who then composed some drawings to go on top, and sent these back to America where Alice combined them to make a new set of prints… voilà!
Now our courses have finished, we have decided to move together to Paris, to pursue our passion for drawing and lithography. We have put together our collaboration Road prints and finished the project by hand colouring them all this summer. We would like to share this project to try and raise some funds to help us pay for: studio space, access to drawing and Lithography workshops at Les Ateliers des Beaux Arts de la Ville de Paris and to start saving for a litho press and stones of our own!
We have 23 unique prints, 57 x 38 cm, for sale at 100€ (£75) each.
Scroll through the images below, and click on them to see them larger. If there is one that you would like, there is a number at the bottom left of the image when you click on them (for example: A2) – Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org telling us the number of your choice and we will mark it as sold and arrange payment and delivery.
Also we have included for sale:
- a new etching by Rob, printed in a studio in Milan called Pigprints as the result of a student prize this summer. There are 25 available, 31 x 28 cm, for 50€ each (£40).
- a small stone lithograph by Alice printed in her own time at The Tamarind Institute. There are 9 available, 28 x 33 cm, for 160€ each (£140).
Have a look and do please share this project with your friends and anybody you feel would be interested!
Many thanks – Rob and Alice
