Inspired by the geometric style of Gustav Klimt, this print encompasses the dreamscape mindset of dreaming in our sleep and wondering if we continue to dream in the afterlife. The rich textures in the tree bark bleeding into the roots show the beautiful effect of the acid process used to create this print.

Art History + Process
Lithography is one of the oldest forms of press printmaking founded in 1796 by German author and actor Alois Senefelder as a cheap method of publishing theatrical works. The process includes drawing or painting an image on a large limestone with oil-based materials, acid treatment, series of washing, applying ink, and rolling through a press. Each print is inked and rolled through the press each time.
