This work is signed and numbered.
Materials: Stones Paste Tusche wash with crayon drawing
Dimensions: 750 x 565 mm
This limited edition lithograph print by contemporary British artist Clare Woods, The Worrier Green, combines a fluid dark purple and blue background with black crayon drawing of a figure. Woods created the print using a Stone Paste Tusche wash, which is a form of grease diluted with water creating softer edges to the colour. She was inspired by the Yorkshire landscape, much like Barbara Hepworth, especially Brimham Rocks and Ilkley Moor.
ABOUT CLARE WOODS
British painter Clare Woods first began photographing the English and Welsh countryside at night, attempting to capture the essence and emotion of a landscape, rather than the land itself. Throughout the course of her career, Woods has investigated three concepts—close up portraits of organic growth in forests, depictions of water and lakes, and lastly, rocks stones and roots which she photographed in Yorkshire.
Woods has exhibited at a number of prominent galleries and museums including Modern Art, London, Leslie and Browne, New York, NY, Galeria de Arte, Madrid, Spain, Andre Buchman, Berlin, and New Art Centre, Wiltshire.
