KIRKEBY, Per

Description

Untitled
1993
Monotype on Tullis handmade paper
84 x 42 in
Per Kirkeby sees a strong sense of consistency in his work and drew inspiration for Untitled from images in his old sketchbooks. The forms in the print reflect Kirkeby's education as a geologist and fascination with patterns found in nature. He likened the swirling lines of this print to the depressions left by fossils in rocks.
