the influence

MoMA | Museum of Modern Art 

March 8 - June 8, 2014 

The exhibition rooms seem to be emitting only a small amount of light. The walls have been painted chartreuse yellow and a dark teal blue. It's not quite time for lunch but I become so hungry I can't concentrate.


This exhibition focuses on Paul Gauguin’s rare prints and transfer drawings. I am smitten by his choice of the ground color that he uses in his almost blackened woodblock prints; a bright burnt sienna orange.


I return to my studio and commence work on my Eastern State Penitentiary series printing with a parole orange + burnt sienna.
