Recommended by Sam (Owner & Director):
"This mezzotint by Seattle artist Carl Chew was commissioned by Davidson Galleries in 1981 as an experiment with Japanese pre-rocked mezzotint plates. The intended edition of 20 impressions was not possible due to the premature breakdown of the rocked surface. The artist's stamp-related image reflects his involvement with mail art on an international level. Works surrounding his invented notion of a Prehistoric Post Office traveled all over the world and were part of a Davidson Galleries exhibition that toured Canada and the U.S. with works by other members of the multinational Artist Stamp movement."
