SAM GILLIAM (1933 - )
Untitled (VOICES: An Artists' Project).

Mixed media on Buckeye Ltd. paper, 1994. 279x356 mm; 11x14 inches. Signed, dated and numbered 82/100 in pencil, lower edge. Published by The National Conference of Artists, Michigan Chapter, Detroit.

This unique work on paper is one of Sam Gilliam's contributions to VOICES, an artist's book created by 23 nationally known African American artists. It is from one of a limited edition of 100 books - each containing original works of art. Sam Gilliam managed to translate his non-objective, sculptural canvas paintings into a series of screenprints that were printed and stitched together.
