DAC Collection Object Information
Color woodcut printed 21 times from 9 blocks on Tosa-hanga paper
The series of which this print is a part reflects and responds to the interest of John Newman (who is primarily a metal sculptor) in the variation of forms as they undergo pressure or manipulation. Keiji Shinohara rubbed the blocks with the inside coils of a baren to create an energetic background texture.
