Aluminum Plate Lithography

I was already familiar with aluminum plate lithography when introduced to the technique of reverse gum wash (lo shu) while studying at the Tamarind Institute in 2001. I found myself intrigued with the method of drawing and have been experimenting with it ever since. I primarily explore the subject of marine life, which I think lends itself well to the technique. This process uses a minuscule amount of gum suspended in water to create highly variable images with unexpected outcomes.
