What do Peter Shire, Ynez
Johnston and Henry Moore have in common?
Answer: the ability to
translate the illusion of space, volume and mass to a two-dimensional
sheet of paper from three-dimensional stone, wood, plaster, ceramic or
And they are not alone.
Our exhibition includes works by Betye Saar, Lynn Chadwick and Sorel
Etrog, as well as by Rico Lebrun, Herbert Bayer, Laddie John Dill and
Jack Zajac....and the list goes on.
In Jacques Lipschitz’s
lithograph we recall the monumental bronze Peace on Earth at the Los
Angeles Music Center Plaza; Arnaldo Pomodoro’s lithograph Untitled
(Grid Pattern) transitions clearly to his intricate mechanistic
bronzes; Henry Moore’s lithograph Thirteen Standing Figures predicts
the organic figuration of his massive sculptures.
Using newsprint and coffee
filters, George Herms’ Collage/Watercolor relate directly to his
assemblages. Peter Krasnow’s lithograph Mikveh connects us to his
wood Demountables. Ruth Asawa’s Tamarind Desert Flower
lithographs bring her hanging handwoven wire sculptures to mind.
Their powers bridge the media.
