1979

About the Item

CORAL 3 is an original hand drawn lithograph created in 1979 by the NY woman artist, Joan Melnick. Inspired by the fragile beauty of coral reefs with their exotic forms and vibrant colors, CORAL 3 is a colorful nature abstract printed in rich shades of deep blue, vibrant yellow, pink, aqua blue, greens, and black depicting a close-up view of coral reef flora. Joan Melnick's travels to Mexico led her to discover the tranquility and unique sensual mystery of a world beneath the sea. Print size 21.75 x 29 inches, unframed, excellent condition, pencil signed by Joan Melnick Year published - 1979 Edition size - 300 Joan Melnick was born 1942 in New York and began painting at an early age. She studied Interior Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology and then went on to study printmaking and painting at New Paltz State University, where she received her Masters in Art. Upon the completion of her studies and several student exhibitions she moved to Manhattan to begin her professional career as a painter. During the sixties Joan taught art in various school programs and began exhibiting her etchings in and around New York. Living and working in New York City had a very strong influence on Joan's paintings. The clarity of color became much stronger and the image much larger, as well as more simplistic. Joan Melnick is considered a colorist, extraordinarily sensitive to the expressive and evocative roles that color plays in art and nature. Usually subtle and fragile, sometimes direct and bold, she handles her transitions from light to shadow with absolute precision. She controls the delicate balance of color, light, and form in a painterly parallel to organic growth.
