Barbara Dinneweth: el baile morado

el baile morado

Barbara Dinneweth (BFA 1989)

This work is about color and texture. Colors are seeping together, filling the white space, covering the voids. One loses control during the dye process and compositional choices take the control back from the free-flowing colors. The cubes are three-dimensional and highly tactile. Cube colors are chosen to interact with the background and highlight the brighter hues seeping out of the deeply dyed spaces. In this piece, there is a sense of natural organic space being filled with regimented, rectilinear, man-made mass.

This work is featured as part of the 2016 Alumni Exhibition: “Horror Vacui”, on display from July 19 - August 6, 2016 at the Argus II Building in Ann Arbor. Check the exhibition page for dates, times, and hours.
