"Trapped" | Carl N. Gorman
I am very pleased to announce that with my mother, Zonnie, the family has established Carl's legacy into a new LLC that will continue to bring his art forward and perpetuate his legacy. In addition to exhibiting his original works, we will be releasing Limited Edition Giclee prints of selected works.
Over his 50 year art career - from the late 1940s to his death in 1998 - my grandfather, Carl Gorman, produce many beautiful works. His scenes of southwestern life, often taken from images of his childhood on the Navajo Indian Reservation, reflected a lifestyle that revolved around horses. He loved the power and beauty of the horse and would often portray them in powerful stances.
"Trapped" is an original Acrylic On Canvas painting from 1983. The minimal line work captures the power and beauty of Navajo horses being corralled. Many of you had the distinct pleasure of viewing the original painting in the gallery over the past several months.
Trapped will be released in two editions:
- A Limited Edition of 200, 30 x 24 inch (76 x 61 cm) giclee prints that match the original canvas size.
- An Open Edition, 11 x 14 (28 x 36 cm) giclee prints
Both editions are printed on 305 gsm cotton paper with archival inks in Taos New Mexico. The edges are hand deckled to produce a unique and beautiful product to be enjoyed for generations. Each print is pressed with Carl's woodcut motif of his trademark, numbered for the edition, and includes a certificate of authenticity.
The Limited Edition Giclee Prints will be released in batches of 60, 60 and 80 over several years.
The first ten of this edition will be offered at an opening price of $550 with the next 20 at $675.
