This is a strictly limited edition lithograph print of a pilot whale. Measuring approximately 25cm x 17.5cm, this is a simple yet beautiful image and as a result of the process, each print is unique. There are only 12 individuals in this pod and each print is unframed, signed and numbered. The artist, Rene Burton, has kindly donated these prints to help raise vital funds for our lifesaving work.

About the print: 

In this series, Rene has used a traditional lithographic process to create a small edition of these prints of a pilot whale. Lithography uses greasy ink to form an image on a block of limestone (pictured below) which is then etched with acid and treated with gum arabic. The printing surface is then fixed, moistened, and inked in preparation for printing. The printing itself is done on a press that exerts a sliding pressure. Only a specific number of prints are pulled, signed, and numbered before the stone is “canceled” (defaced).

About the artist: 
Rene Burton is an artist based in Auckland, New Zealand. He recently graduated with a Master of Art & Design (Hons. First Class) from AUT University. His thesis topic was an artistic response to the idea of climate change as a social and ecological palimpsest. Burton’s work typically reframes dialogues about the landscape to create holistic visions of ecologies that include humans and their activities. Human interventions into the landscape are not highlighted as discrete actions upon the land but rather are incorporated as scars and marks that are part of the actual body of the landscape.  He works incorporate traditional printmaking, photography and film.
