Description

Unlike her early gestural abstract expressionism Sonia Gechtoff uses a hard edged abstracted composition for this large color etching, with added embossing. The shapes are like angular flattened tropical palm leaves, like a collage, with a simplified landscape background.

Gechtoff used the whole sheet of paper for the image, signing it using a white crayon. This is one of two images, the other being "Brooklyn Bridge" that were done at Hudson River Editions and published by Gruenebaum Graphics Ltd., New York in 1984.
