THE PRINT COLLECTOR'S NEWSLETTER: Vol XVI No 3: July/August 1985
Karen Gunderson, Sky Passage (1984), a two-color woodcut signed and numbered by the artist in an edition of 16. Each Print is 11-1/4x23-7/8 in. and was printed on Kozo paper by the artist in New York. Gunderson cut the block herself, inked it with blue and black oil-based inks, and transferred the image by rubbing with her hands and a spoon. Depicted, of course, are clouds in the sky, the subject she has pursued for more than 16 years. The print, which reverses a gouache she did for a very large 1985 painting, is most successful. Happily she is doing more. Price: $325. Published by the artist, New York. Available in Chicago at Perimeter Gallery.
