Description
Salvatore Grippi worked at Atelier 17 in New York experimenting with lift ground etching and engraving and shaped plates. His work had mythological themes which he feels had roots in his time spent in the army in WWII where he participated in the Normandy invasion. The image overlaps, moving from abstract to figurative, two dimensional to sculptural. For more information on Grippi see our Biography.
