Lithography differs from other techniques by its approach close to drawing.
This is one of the reasons why Arruda wanted to explore the medium of lithography. In 2018, while he was in residence in France, Cahiers d’Art offered Arruda the opportunity to try his hand at lithography and decided to produce several of the new works for his exhibition Deserto Modelo. Between initiation, trial and error and demands, this series is the fruit of a long research and remains faithful to the artist’s universe. Lucas Arruda builds his landscapes from memory and tries to capture the light in them. The series of luminous lithographs was produced in Michael Woolworth’s workshops.
