The artwork of William Gatewood (1943-1994) combines the iconography of the East with a Western painting approach. Borrowing from Japanese traditions and form, gold or silver leaf is frequently used as background, overpainting with transparent and opaque layers playing random patterns against more geometric ones. References to flight, space and fragility are represented by structures or objects constructed from paper and wood such as kites, panels and screens. 26 x 18. An identical signed William Gatewood print can sell for nearly $500 anywhere else if you can find it. Fred's Price: $295
