Carol Summers

These paintings from Carol Summers (b. 1925) look like adventures to me. Summers creates these prints using an innovative woodblock technique-- he frequently uses solvents to "transform the pigments into dyes which then tend to penetrate the paper and result in a watercolor effect. This allows for rich colors and soft blurred edges." I love the skewed landscapes and huge forms here and the color pulls me in.
