When David Lynch had his exhibition "The Air Is On Fire" at the Fondation Cartier in Paris in Protected content , the director introduced him to Patrice Forest, who was on the street a few blocks down the street
Montparnasse, the world-famous printing company for li thography "Mourlot" taken. Have there between the two world wars such as Braque, Calder, Chagall, Dubuffet, Fautrier, Giacometti, Matisse, Miró and Picasso worked.

The lithograph was invented by Aloys Senefelder at the end of the 18th century. Until then known printing techniques of high pressure (woodcut) and gravure (copperplate engraving, etching) now joined a third process, the planographic pressure added. The artist draws with a special Chalk on a Solnhofen flagstone his motif. The subsequent processing of the stone allows it to accept ink only where the artist drew. The advantage existed at that time in the low wear of the printing plates, what the possibilities of high editions entailed. First, the lithography in the poster advertising application, discovered later
the artists this technique for themselves.

What excites David Lynch about lithography is the fact that he uses ink or chalk pencil Similar to his drawings and watercolors, and that after each print of the Edition the motif of the stone is sanded only in a thickness of 1/10 mm. So gather on the same stone not only Lynch's motives, but also those of the famous ancestors, too worked there. Werner Spies writes in his text about the lithographs of Lynch: "Man
can still grind the stone so well, edit it ..., it keeps the memory in a sense the skin burned in. "He adds," At one go, the surface of the stone shimmers, in the midst of the new composition, something of the past life through. What comes up, call that Lithographs "Phantoms". "" You remain silent, have lost your speech. But they are capable to influence the artist. Because he realizes that he has his own pictures and characters in a strange, repressed memory. "

The lithographs exhibited in the gallery thus have a double secret: the often humorous, but also very mysterious and fateful world of David Lynch mixes in it with the traces of bygone eras.

Part of the exhibited lithographs were in Protected content the great Lynch retrospective in Torun, Poland, and will be in Protected content the Bonnefantenmuseum Maastricht and in HOME Manchester
