Description
In the 1950s Childs developed an abstract picture language, in which he worked with archetypical signs and symbols and with the methods of surrealistic automatism. Childs used electrically powered tools to work directly on his plates. He lent velvet-like structures and a vivid, skilful line direction to his prints.
