Original pencil signed woodcut printed in dark ochre, titled EMERGING PHILOSOPHER, numbered 13/200, image approx. 8.5 x 14 in. plus margins. Fine condition. Garchik had the following to say about this woodcut - The joys and terrors of woodcut are the changing states. Wood is cut away, the image evolves, with the choice of stopping at a point which may be satisfactory, or cutting further [with no possibility of return] in search of a stronger statement latent in the block. This print shares that experience. It contains three separate imprints of many states, adding a dimension of time to the work.
