NOTES
This work’s floating spirals, arcs, and leaf-like shapes are both printed and painted. Bill Hutson is inclined to revise his own compositions and paint on unconventional supports. After returning from Brandywine Workshop with a stack of impressions of the offset lithograph Ebco Na and responding to cues from the underlying image, he applied acrylic to create several variations, of which this is one. A staining method is coupled with hand-brushed marks—thick, linear accretions of finely blended color—evoking depth.
