This exhibition spans a 30 year period as the earliest prints in the exhibition date back to 1970 by Craig Kauffman, and the latest are 1999 by Charles Christoper Hill. All four artists have approached making a lithograph differently using a variety of thecniques that referenced the paintings they were working on at the time.

Craig Kauffman's untitled silkscreen dated 1970 was printed with transparent inks on a translucent vellum paper. This print was done in this manner to crate a see through quality to the colors versus a ink on paper look thus resembling the colors of his vaccum formed plastic paintings. Craig also produced a series of four lthograaphs about the same time that referenced projected litght pieces he exhibited at UCLA. He used photographs of blood cells on an oscilascope that mimicked thse light projections.

The late prints of Craig's are more traditional in their approach to drawing and the use of pen, ink, collage, and washes are evident in the prints from the eighties.

Brad Durham has done six series of prints at Cirrus, the first three were monoprints, the third was a set of four lithographs, and the last two were sets of lithograph/monprints. All of Brad's work incorporates the imagery of flowers, and plants. Brad's prints employ a hands on method of painting direclty on the litho plate with ink for each impression. In some prints the addition of hand applied charcoal that was crushed by the motion of the press added an immediacy and physicality to the images that changed each impression making all of Durham's prints unique

Marc Katano has done four editions at Cirrus. The first is a traditional lithograph printed from mylar drawings using pen ink and washes. Marc is alergic to solvent based printing and painting materials, and since lithography is based on oil and water resisting each other it was quite a chalenge to come up with a water only lithograph. Using the offset press Marc painted on a sheet of paper and then used this drawing as the litho plate to transfer the drawing to another sheet of blank paper. Each image is unique creating lucious bleeding washes , a background for his floaating leaf abstractions titled "All Blues", "Red Ochres", and "Sentimental Papers".

Christopher Hill has completed over 27 Editions at Cirrus since 1972. His work has tested the printmaking techniques in many ways. Hill's work has deconstructed the concept of painting by building a work of art, then destroying it, only to give it rebirth. In the early 70's Hill made paintings by composting them in the ground. His first print was a silkscreen that was printed using rit cloth dye on newsprints that were buried in the ground, then reconstitued by stiching the layers back together, first with a grid in blue thread, then various so called patching lines in red. For the project encomapsing the prints Ecstatic, Solomonic, Optimo, Hill went to the paper mill and created images in the paper that came from the print Slomonic. These papers were then printed with lithographic runs drawn by the artist, using the images that he put in the paper at the paper mill. In a third reworking he used all the cast off printed newsprints to make a series of fifty, one of a kind works.

The series titled Soveriehn used many types of tissue and rice papers cut into squares and rectangles that were mounted to a backing paper before printing began. These sheets were transformed with lithographic printings some of which were made by cutting a wood block that was then used to make a lithographic plate, as well as hand drawn lithographic washes and markings with crayon. The last series titled Jounals, used a random monoprinted background with many layers of drawings made on mylars by the artist using crayons washes, and, pencils.
