Satisfied Man

Kerry James Marshall (American, born 1955) Printed by Kerry James Marshall (American, born 1955) Published by Ludion, Antwerp, Belgium
This woodcut by Kerry James Marshall emphasizes the duality of figure and shadow and the contrast between solidity and intangibility. The presence of this almost life-size figure, paired with the scale of this work, confronts the viewer head-on. Marshall accentuates the dynamism of the work by layering shiny and matte inks one over the other, creating a striking irregularity across the surface.
