"Match Point"
No. 3016028 - woodcut

Grabbing the intensity and intrigue of the moment is a special skill that Mr. Tar finds easy. This scene, another of the Washington Square Park collection, features "Match Point" in a game of chess. As the two players duke it out, on-lookers show their deep interest in the outcome -- feel the tension in their facial and bodily expressions.

Mr. Tar's color woodcut collection is quite limited. Each is individually colored with watercolor paint after press, making it an original piece. The end result is quite impressive and expressive.
