As established by Sam Francis, The Lapis Press' prime directive has always been a creative collaboration with artists to realize their unique vision. Gabriel Orozco's 2004 Lotus Leaf series began as classic chine collé prints but took on another life as the work evolved through the creative dialogue between Orozco and Lapis.

Gabriel Orozco's interest in the natural world and its relationship with humans inspired him to have actual lotus leaves etched into the printing plates, creating a man made yet true rendering of the leaf. Every vein, tear, and insect bite was captured and imprinted on special custom milled Gampi paper matching the hues of the leaf. The proofs were made as chine collé soft ground etchings, individually cut to the shape of each leaf and adhered to a heavy fine art paper.

While working on the edition, Orozco felt the proofs lacked the organic authenticity he originally envisioned. He had a revelation while holding one of the tissue thin leaf prints up to the window: the exquisite purity that he was seeking was best displayed deconstructed and suspended in glass, illuminated all around, like a delicate specimen.

The Lapis Press happily collaborated with Gabriel Orozco to find a method inspired by displaying medical samples for mounting the tissue-thin etchings. The somewhat unorthodox technique used for this edition was an exciting challenge that resulted in a series of lifelike images that honors the natural world.


Gabriel Orozco (b. 1962 in Mexico) is a multimedia, contemporary artist known for re-framing everyday objects. Born in Veracruz, Mexico, he studied at the Escuela Nacional de Arte Plásticas and Circulo de Bellas Artes. Orozco's work has been exhibited in multiple international venues, including the Venice Biennale, Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C., the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, the Guggenheim Museum in New York and the Serpentine Gallery in London. Orozco lives and works in New York and Mexico City.
