In her most recent series, Ives explores the figure as it moves through water—at the surface,
below, and looking down from above—creating colorful ripples or exploding above a swimmer’s
head like a jeweled headdress. These contemporary figures, combined with her exquisite
portrayal of water, make Ives’ paintings fresh, exciting, and relevant.
