Label TextThis highly regarded contemporary printer uses only three printing plates--yellow, red, and blue--to create her works. Oxman's visually sumptuous works seem to speak about how artists look at the world, whether observing and transcribing actual objects, or contemplating "the museum without walls," portable reproductions of art.
