Print Gilliam Golden Neck 11 x 14
Complex color and texture are evident in Golden Neck, which is assembled from fragments of printed paper thickly coated with acrylic and stitched. As with his shaped paintings, Sam Gilliam’s prints, like this one, often deviate from the traditional rectangular format and have sculptural qualities. Working experimentally at Brandywine Workshop, a studio founded in 1972 to expand printmaking opportunities for artists of color, Gilliam cut up, reassembled, sewed, and raked paint across the prints he pulled from the presses.
