Reddy is known as an innovator who merges the natural and spiritual worlds in his prints. He studied in London and worked at studios in Paris and Italy, perfecting his unique printmaking technique at Atelier 17 in Paris. Reddy sees the plate as a sculpted surface, and intaglio printing as a three-dimensional process. By varying ink viscosity and roller density, he creates complex colors resulting in extraordinary compositions.

Good estate condition; not examined out of frame.
