Elizabeth Magill

Blue Hold, a lithograph print, is based on a painting that Magill exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer exhibition in 2010 and which won the Sunny Dupree Family award. Worked on by the artist for over a year, the created image gives the impression of having matured over time. Visually rooted in nature, there is also a dreamy and mysterious quality to the work, reflected in the enigmatic title. Keeping only the original motif of four towering trees, Magill has completely reconfigured the colour composition for the print. Magill relishes the process of lithography, which allows her to create a work by layering colour over colour until the effects she desires are achieved. Blue Hold marks the first work commissioned directly by Manifold Editions.
Technique

A lithograph consisting of 9 colour plates, printed on 300 gsm Somerset White Velvet paper. Published by Manifold Editions 2012.

Elizabeth Magill
Born in Canada (1959), Elizabeth Magill 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. Her subtle, painterly, landscapes often evolve from a combination of photographic precursors and drawings. As well as solo shows in Ireland, Britain, Germany, France and Spain, she is represented in a number of significant collections, including the Irish Museum of Modern Art, the Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin, the Arts Council of England, Southampton City Art Gallery, the British Council, and the National Gallery of Australia. The year 2017 has been busy, with a solo show in April at Wilkinson Gallery, London, another at Limerick City Art Gallery, and more shows to come at the RHA gallery, Dublin (opening January 18, 2018), and the Ulster Museum (opening May, 2018).

Lithograph
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.
