Elizabeth Magill

March marks Manifold Editions' third collaboration with Elizabeth Magill. The title of the lithograph refers to its meaning both as a boundary as well as the beginning of spring. March is printed using Magill's favoured technique of lithography. 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. Eleven lithographic plates and colours were printed on top of one-another to create the final image of March. 


Technique

A lithograph consisting of 11 colour plates, printed on 300 gsm Somerset White Velvet paper. Published by Manifold Editions 2016.



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.
