Play of Squares
Play of Squares
This composition indicates the grid innate in the weaving process and the artist's interest in geometric shapes. Although each row is different, each row also contains either three dark squares or three white squares. The design is nonrepresentational, referring to nothing more than basic shapes and the art making process, a marker of modernist art. Like many works by the artist, this textile uses earthtones and conveys a flat, two-dimensional space. The work is highly patterned, but also displays movement and rhythm with the varied placement of the squares. The Currier Gallery of Art
