DescriptionThis large serigraph work is comprised of layers of spontaneous lines of black, orange and pink. These lines are combined with large strokes of black, and blue pigment. In the centre of the artwork, there are shapes recognizable as leaves. One of 75 prints, the lively, free-flowing linework in this piece reflects the Surrealist-influenced technique of automatism, which required him to move his tools unconsciously and create through free association.
