Lawlor lives and works in Dublin, Ireland and was the 2013 International Juried Exhibition Winner at New Grounds Gallery. Lawlor's multi-plate etchings have a rich tonality similar to the lushness of traditional oil paintings and in this demonstration he shows and discusses methods for inking, wiping and printing multiple plates to produce such richness (including registration methods).
