Garo Antreasian was hired by June Wayne as Tamarind Lithography Workshop’s first technical director in 1960. He was an incredibly skilled printer, having had the unique fortune of encountering lithography as early as high school. Although he continued to investigate the possibilities of printmaking while studying art at the John Herron Art Institute in Indianapolis, like most American artists learning lithography before World War II, Antreasian was essentially self-taught. The artist developed a strong mechanical sense of the materials, and his technical know-how was a large part of Tamarind’s early success. He returned to teaching and set up a pre-training program for Tamarind printers in 1961 at Herron, then in 1964 at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, where he pulled a number of prints published by Tamarind. His Quantum series is a complex arrangement of layered colors used along with airbrushing on transfer paper and various stop outs to create a graduated spectrum and a three-dimensional effect.
