Light Splash, 1993

Robert Graves
(American, born 1929, died 2013)

Location: Vinland Elementary, Poulsbo

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.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Late artist Robert Graves lived and worked in Wenatchee in Central Washington, where he taught art at Wenatchee Valley College for 32 years. In 1976 he founded and directed the college's community art gallery, which was renamed in his honor in 2007. His abstract paintings and prints are expressive explorations and abstractions of the Northwest environment.
