LOUISE NEVELSON "NIGHTSTAR" 1980
Louise Nevelson is one of the most revered and unique artists of the 20th century.
Although Nevelson is best known for her work as a sculptor, like many of her American contemporaries, Nevelson explored the many different branches of printmaking collaborating with the best print studios across America. While Nevelson's sculpture had a consistency, her printmaking was far more experimental.
In the late 1970's Nevelson met and studied with Garner Tullis (of the International Institute of Experimental Printmaking) who introduced Nevelson to pressed pulp / cast paper printmaking. Of all of Nevelson's work in printmaking, this medium arguably had the most synergy with her sculptures as these prints, created from molds, produced relief prints with incredible depth and texture.
"Nightstar" is an interesting work within the group of about ten cast paper prints Nevelson created, not only for its form but its interesting mink-like color. Similar to Nevelson's sculpture the form appears to be assembled of numerous wooded elements that have been arranged and painted a uniform color.
