Kouros

Kouros, 30x30 in., Rust Monotype on panel with gold leaf

































Roby King Galleries In Winslow on Bainbridge Island, Washington, hosts a Printmaking Exhibition this month.  The opening reception is October 3 at 6 PM.  My rust Monotype Kouros (youth), above, and companion print Kore (maiden) will be exhibited.

Kouros and Kore were inspired by sculpture of archaic Greece (800 BC – 480 BC).  The Kouroi and Korai sculptures of Greece did not represent an individual but the idea and ideal of youth, a combination of moral and physical beauty and nobility.
