Paper Between a Snowed Stone and Road, 
from the series Surface is the Between: Between Vertical and Horizon

1981

Silkscreen and lithograph, printed on both sides
Museum Purchase: Caroline Ladd Pratt Fund, 83.58.2

Ida used handmade translucent paper as his between and then printed an image of a road on the back and a stone on the front, creating the illusion of a stone resting on a fine layer of snow on a paved surface. A water stain, deliberately applied by the artist, appears at bottom right; seemingly random stains appear in several other prints by the artist on display here.
