2017. Watercolor on paper. 9 x 12 ¼ in. Item #3950
Jody Uttal’s current series of watercolors, Concurrences, is inspired in part by early 20th Century Finnish textiles and the woven works of Bauhaus artist Anni Albers, as well Agnes Martin’s drawings.
Each piece begins with a freehand painted grid, usually of a single color. In a process Uttal describes as both meditative and obsessive, sections of the painting unfold to her, square by square, over several weeks.
