Elizabeth Michelman, Diploma '92 Elizabeth Michelman Color Theory Series (Stuart Davis 11)_2019

33h x 22.5w x 0.33d

DESCRIPTION: Paintings, , Adhesive vinyl on alumilite panel

ARTIST STATEMENT: My Color Theory Series explores the risks of submitting to artistic influence: emotional dependency, conflict and competition, loyalty and individuation. I share with Stuart Davis a passion for musical improvisation, urban and industrial architecture, and visual-verbal puns. Turning Davis’s Cubist landscapes vertical, I substitute my abstract pictorial concept, composition, and structure, revising his proportions and colors in response to my own limited color palette of commercial sign-vinyl.
