Blue Light is an edition of 175 lithographs which Anthony Frost made in association with the St Ives Printing and Publishing Company at their Penbeagle Printing Works, and is presented in an acid free portfolio. It is the result of 13 printings of 13 colours superimposed to make full use of the litho ink’s translucency, and took over 6 months to create. This, together with the process’s ability to reproduce Anthony’s brush strokes directly from the plate, gives the print unique characteristics not seen in the now more common printmaking processes of etching, silk-screen or relief printing.
This print was very generously donated to Porthmeor Studios by artist Anthony Frost, and Toni Carver proprietor of St Ives Printing and Publishing Company.
