  • About the artwork

    "2 pots" is Ilk's first original lithograph, usually accustomed to risography. This series produced at Idem Paris, with whom Koméla has collaborated since its beginnings, is not therefore the reproduction of an existing work but rather an original and exclusive creation.

    Thus, Ilk went to the studio of the 14th district of Paris to draw his contemporary pots and plants on a hundred-year-old limestone, chosen for its format and for its marks and other flaws showing its history. The drawing on the stone having been erased just after printing, this lithograph becomes an original work whose rarity is equaled only by its quality.

    While he usually likes to make the contours of his flat tints with an airbrush, Ilk wanted to try out new techniques to give rise to a work and a finish specific to traditional lithography.

    In traditional lithography, a drawing on a stone can not simply be fixed without leaving traces. On the other hand, lightly sanding the stone engenders attenuated or even unprinted parts. It is this technique that Ilk decided to privilege in order to keep his blurry and slobbery lines.
    It was also from a perspective of discovery and experimentation that he covered a part of his stone several times with lithographic ink and then wiped it off with patterned fabric, creating in this way a random but orderly repetition of "patterns" of this fabric.

    The work "2 pots" illustrates a subject of preference of the artist, the still lifes, one of his current themes of research and exploration.

    Each print has two colors that were printed on a 19th century press : the main drawing from the stone and the background from an aluminum plate. These two successive layers, in the way they were imagined, also allow to play on matching shapes and recuts of which Ilk has the secret and that he experiences in painting as well.
    Available in two shaded versions, Corail and Turquoise, this work offers two series of which all the copies had been handfinished with acrylic in order to present a lithograph astride edition and unique work of art.
