The Art of Martha Ives

August 7, 2015


Several years ago, already an accomplished artist, my friend Martha Ives discovered that she loved making prints. The involved process of making etchings, woodcuts, and linocuts seemed to liberate her imagination. I remember that at the beginning of her explorations she was captivated by the challenge of expressing movement in a still picture.  Her latest piece, "The Red Pail," does that beautifully. 


Looking at "The Red Pail," I have the sense of a mother taking her child to the beach for a splendid day in the sun and sand–-two things not seen in the picture but powerfully suggested.
