ARTIST STATEMENT: I am a printer specially for the lithography. Lithography is a 200 year old printing technique, invented in Germany. Unlike the etching or engraving on metal plates, it is a planographic printing process based on the resistance of water to grease. An image is drawn on limestone or an aluminum plate with a greasy substance, such as a crayon or ink. Then etched with acid to make stabilize the image. After dampening the surface with water, printing ink adheres only on the image area. When the matrix is run through a press with a sheet of paper, the inked surface is transferred. The fluid, spontaneous strokes that appear in lithography because of the grain of stones or aluminum plates. Unfortunately, to the printer, always more respect on printing technique. I conjecture that beyond technique, however, the successful work of art will be a fortuitous marriage of idea, image, and process. My works are most of representational, some are abstracts as objects as lights floated in a space in silence, or a frozen land scape, the view beyond window with rain drops. Either abstract or representational, I aim to depict the atmosphere of the confined space, naturally composed and naturally existing objects in my works. It is a most important for my works, because I hope that my works will become a window of healing to calm one’s mind.
