ABOUT THE ARTWORK
Light Splash is an expressive monoprint by artist Robert Graves. A monoprint is created by painting directly onto the printing plate, and only one print copy can be made from the plate. The abstract imagery in this monoprint is comprised of layers of color. Of his compositions, Graves notes "my object is not to copy nature, but relate on the canvas certain entities of personal expression."
This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with North Kitsap School District.
