Sophie Taeuber-Arp’s Circles and Half-circles

mixed media, 2014, 35"w x 62"h

What is the power of repetition, interpretation across generations, rereading and misreading historical artworks? Through my work I try to question subjectivity and originality. In doing so, I engage with the works of female avant-garde modernist artists from the early 20th century. To produce the work I added layers of silkscreen, oil and acrylic paint on unstretched cotton muslin. I created the compositions in this piece by appropriating elements from Sophie Taeuber-Arp’s work and sewing patterns from Soviet magazines from 1980.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
