The Work of Art
Green becomes black is a good example of abstract exressionism by Carl Plate. It is a series of shades and forms that intereact with each other, clashing and sometimes complementing each other. Published in 1968 this is a limited edition screenprint and a significant work in the University's Art Collection.
