Sarah Innes: Monahans


Sarah Innes (BFA 1979; MFA 1989)

I worked on a painting of Monahan's fish market for eight months. During that time, I drew at the market. This is a to-size drawing of that composition more or less. As I made changes, I added layers of tracing paper so the resulting work has several layers of drawings which add lots of movement and action to the atmosphere of the work and which represent the atmosphere of the market.

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.
