Hinter refers to an area behind or beyond – perhaps, some kind of atmospheric agitation. A new lithograph print, puboished by Manifold Editions continues the theme of the Blue Hold series, using imagery from natural landscape as a point of departure. In her painted works, Magill delicately imposes layer after layer of colour until the image takes on an ageless quality, as though coming to us from a distant past. Transforming the subject into the medium of lithograph gives the artist the chance to vary colour composition and texture to create new effects of mood and atmosphere. In her own words ‘Lithography allows me to work as close to my painting technique as possible – as a painter I rely on a build up of layers to create the work. Lithography functions in a similar way, but unlike painting, I can refer back to a previous layer/plate’.
|Artist Description||Elizabeth Magill (born 1959 in Canada) is an Irish painter. She grew up in Northern Ireland and, having studied at the Belfast College of Art and the Slade School of Fine Art, now lives and works in London. Magill is a painter of prodigious versatility and inventiveness whose work has always drawn from a wide range of visual sources. While she often integrates photographic materials and processes into her painting in a number of novel ways, her primary focus has been the medium of painting, in all its bewildering variety. Her first major solo exhibition was at the Arnolfini Gallery, Bristol, in 1990. In the same year she was included in the 'British Art Show', which first introduced many of the most prominent younger British artists to a wider public.|

|Technique Pop ups||Lithography – Means, literally, stone drawing. In addition to fine grain lithographic stones, metal plates can also be used for lithography. The method relies on the fact that grease repels water. An image is drawn in a greasy medium on to the stone or plate, which is then dampened with water. Greasy printing ink rolled onto that surface will adhere to the design but be repelled by the damp area. The inked image is transferred to the paper via a press. For large editions, the grease is chemically fixed to the stone and gum arabic, which repels any further grease marks but does not repel water, is applied to the rest of the surface. For colour lithography the artist uses separate stone or plate for each colour required.|
