Introducing Betty Woodman. Maybe you saw her retrospective at the Met 2 years back? Woodman, is a leading -- and exuberant -- ceramic artist who, lucky for those of us with far more modest budgets than museums, also creates prints!
"A Roman Interior": Color woodcut w/chine collé : 37 x 27" : Ed. 30
For years she’s been collaborating with master printer, Bud Shark, of Shark’s Ink to make monotypes, woodcuts and lithographs. You can see how her touch with clay --- breaking things apart and reassembling -- finds its way into her 2-d work... as well as her enduring interest in vases and pots...
"Balustrade Vase G": 1993. Color monotype collage : 44 x 30" : 1/1
