Behind this print
2011. I was finally making a longly expected trip to El Chaltén, in southern Patagonia Argentina. As soon as we came down of the bus, I was amazed by the perfection and beauty of the Mount Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre.
I had never seen such magnificent creation of nature, standing there as two giants watching over this amazing little town.
Back in the city, I decided to make two print series as a way put my fascination into paper. This is the first one of them: the Fitz Roy silkscreen prints.
20 x 27.5 inches 320 gsm. chemical free white paper.
Orange, green, and burlack eco friendly ink.
1952 vía sudeste: Lionel Terray y Guido Magnone. 1965 vía Supercanaleta: Carlos Comesaña y José Luis Fonrouge. 1968 ruta Californiana: Yvon Chouinard, Dick Dorworth, Chris Jones, Lito Tejada Flores y Douglas Tompkins.
Each print is individually pulled by hand, numbered and signed, and will contain unique imperfections.
J. L. Fonrouge quote
“Bright with ice, snow and rock, such a fascinating universe of peaks tells of eternity and permanence, in contrast with our fleeting journey.”
