This is one of a portfolio of ten prints Austen created at Cirrus Editions in Los Angeles using a lithographic process. The artist was inspired to embark on printmaking in the famous print workshop during his solo exhibitions at the affiliated Cirrus Gallery in 1989 and 1991. The designs began as studies Austen made of plants in the gallery garden before being transferred to lithographic plates. They were printed on thin handmade paper of three different sorts: Moulin Richard de Bas (L02286; L02288; L02295); Auvergne ala Malm (L02289; L02294); and a third unknown handmade paper (L02287; L02290; L02291; L02292; L02293). For each print Austen used one of two colours – yellow ochre (L02286; L02288; L02289; L02292) and burnt sienna mixed with red (L02287; L02290; L02291; L02293; L02294; L02295). Every page has a strongly defined monochrome image set in the centre of the paper surrounded by a large blank area. The portfolio was printed at the Cirrus Editions workshop by Francesco Siquerios, assisted by Robert Dansby in an edition of thirty. Each print is signed; the date and edition number are written beneath the image in pencil. Tate’s copy is the twenty-eighth in the edition… (read more)
