Description
According to David Acton in his essay "The Prints of Leonard Edmondson,” the artist began to shape his intaglio plates in the mid-1960s by sawing them into jagged shapes before working their surfaces. Flower Power is printed from two such sawn irregular shaped intaglio plates. Edmondson used softground to add a variety of textures to his plate including Asian coins and medals which he inked separately isolating each area of texture and color.
