Royal Academy of Arts opens LithORRgraphy. Chris Orr RA and the Art of Chemical Printing. 

A new exhibition in the Tennant Gallery at the Royal Academy explores the method and madness featured in the lithographs of Chris Orr RA. Orr is one of Britain’s foremost artist-printmakers, renowned for his technical mastery, joyfully anarchic subject matter and thought provoking content. The medium of lithography is a process that depends on the chemical antipathy of grease and water to create a printed image and this exhibition will contain more than twenty prints, ranging in date from 1974 to 2011. All prints in the exhibition have been generously presented to the Royal Academy Collection by the artist. (Source Art daily)
