Foundation purchase, Phyllis C. Wattis Fund for Major Accessions
© 2019 Squeak Carnwath / Licensed by VAGA at Artists Rights Society (ARS), NY
Using a book of patterns found in Islamic textiles and art Carnwath creates a background of bold, fluid pattern of curls and arabesques over which she places images that are visually connected by a dotted black line: a man in red running shorts, a Buddha image, a human brain, a hat, and two hand prints. The background is brilliant cerulean blue and other colors used are yellow, green, orange and red.
