[A silkscreen by Norman Ives]


Long before Andy Warhol, artists had been enticed by the means of creating multiple images of their creations. Durer, Rembrandt, Matisse and Braque were masters of this extension of their art. As a student at Wesleyan University and at Yale University, Norman Ives showed an early interest in printmaking.* This 2-color screenprint is not student work, though. It’s a sophisticated showing by a mature artist and designer. A lovely meditation.
