Worked Earth (12 prints)Michael Carlo (b1945)
Worked Earth by Michael Carlo, a set of 12 woodcuts with lithograph based on an ancient wood close to the artist’s Suffolk home. The images are the same as produced in the set Earth Works (shown separately), but have different colour treatments and more of a textured finish (perhaps due to the woodcut).
Printed in 2006 on Somerset Velvet 300gsm. Each print shows a different view, with fantastic texture and tones. Each sheet is signed, titled and numbered in pencil. Note, in this set, each of the 12 images has a different edition size – the lowest is 8 and the highest is 15, so very small edition sizes.
