Laura Crehuet Berman’s debut project with Flatbed Press is a suite of three lithograph prints created in her signature style of layered and luminous colors. The series “Ravel” is based on a series of drawings of small tangles of string, each which she constructed by hand before creating the drawings. To Berman, these loose, handmade and interwoven knots represent the wonderment of being an individual as well as someone connected to larger communities through family, friends and other meaningful associations. Throughout her life as an artist, mother, daughter and teacher, Berman’s own connections to others weave far and wide. Alyssa Ebinger, lead litho collaborator and printer worked with Laura in March 2022 at Flatbed’s professional studio. Laura drew multiple transparencies that would become the multiple lithographic layers of ink that “build” the complex images. This project is a prime example of how Berman’s intention creating images that communicate a life of meaningful interconnections was dependent upon the close collaboration of Laura and Alyssa. Alyssa’s skill at translating Berman’s color sensibilities using multiple colors in blend rolls on every run transformed and brought life to what is essentially ink on paper.

A part of the Ravel Suite, Ravel 2 is a color lithograph accomplished with nine runs involving seventeen colors.  All runs used blend rolls.
