Gwen Schagrin: Lighthouses in Iceland are ORANGE!

Lighthouses in Iceland are ORANGE!

Gwen Schagrin (BFA 1972)

This work is a reaction to the feeling of orange lighthouses in Iceland. My fabric works are experiments in combining form, mass, color, and using close hues, an effect which fascinates me. Trying to paint abstractly using pieced fabric continues to inform how I work.

This work is featured as part of Future Former: An Exhibition of Alumni Work. This exhibition honors the creative work and careers of all Stamps School alumni, creates an aspirational connection between generations of U-M artists and designers and current Stamps students, and inspires reflection during the university's Bicentennial year.
