STANLEY DONWOOD At Laz Inc


If you lived here you'd be home by now is the title of the new Stanley Donwood opening at Lazinc later this week. Donwood is known internationally for his work on album and poster art for the band Radiohead. His first solo show at the Lazarides Gallery received huge interest from the public, and for his second solo exhibition Donwood has created a series of new etchings and paintings, including Home, illustrated above.

The new prints are made in a complicated and laborious photogravure etching process, using a printing press more than 150 years old. According to the artist, "Photogravure etching is an almost unbelievably complicated, laborious, involved, lengthy and difficult process. I now look upon my endeavours lastyear with all that London Views linocutting and printing as pretty much a walk in the fucking park."
