Kirkeby stopped by Crown Point Press on his way back from a trip to the South Seas with his wife and two children. He stayed less than a week but in that time he completed four large color etchings and eighteen small black & white ones. He worked hard and confidently. There wasn't time for him to absorb techniques new to him, so the Crown Point prints reflect ways he had made prints in the past. They also reflect his ideas about accumulation and about drawing as quick notation. In his sculpture Kirkeby accumulates bricks; in his paintings and prints he accumulates layers of fast-moving drawing.
