Carol Summers "Northern Lights" Color Woodblock Print, framed


Description: Color woodblock and monoprint. Edition 59/100. Signed, titled, and numbered in pencil. Bio: From 1948 to 1951, Carol Summers trained in the classical fine and studio arts at Bard College and at the Art Students League of New York. He studied painting with Steven Hirsh and printmaking with Louis Schanker. In 1954, Summers received a grant from the Italian government to study for a year in Italy. Woodcuts completed soon after his arrival there were almost all editions of only 8 to 25 prints, small in size, architectural in content and black and white in color. Around this same time, along with fellow artist Leonard Baskin, Summers pioneered what is now referred to as the monumental woodcut. This term was coined in the early 1960s to denote woodcuts that were dramatically bigger than those previously created in earlier years, ones that were limited in size mostly by the size of small hand presses. Summers ultimately refined a relief printmaking process, which would eventually be called the Carol Summers Method or the Carol Summers Technique. Summers creates his woodcuts by hand, usually from one or more blocks of quarter-inch pine, using oil-based printing inks and porous mulberry papers. His woodcuts reveal a sensitivity to wood, especially its absorptive qualities and the subtleties of the grain. In several of his woodcuts throughout his career he has used the undulating, grainy patterns of a large wood plank to portray a flowing river or tumbling waterfall.
