Dexter's Choice, State # II is a unique, mixed media work from an edition of 30 UNIQUE variants done in pochoir, (25 stencils, 14 colors). Here, Zox uses watercolor instead of inks, which is applied to heavy 300 lb. watercolor paper. Although it is a multiple signed and numbered from the edition of 30, each work of art is unique because of how the paper receives the watercolor brush. In addition, this work is created like a mixed media painting because it has 11 lines added by hand with wax and water based crayons and oil sticks. The unique watercolor techinque that Zox employed in making "Dexter's Choice" is documented in the textbook, "Screen Printing: Water Based Techniques,Roni Henning, NYIT ".
Dexter's Choice was published by Images Gallery, and this work was acquired directly from the publisher before they sold out.
Signature: Signed and numbered by the artist on the recto from the edition of only 30, though each of the 30 is UNIQUE. The paper has those desirable deckled edges which would look stunning floated and framed. This superb mixed media work is in excellent condition; never framed or exposed to daylight.
