12 X 12: Martha Clippinger

Exhibition Website

Jun 6 2017 - Jul 9 2017

Durham-based artist Martha Clippinger activates color in space through her brightly hued weavings, roughly hewn sculptures, and paintings. Combining the sensibilities of Bauhaus fiber artist Anni Albers, the rich traditions of Mexican tapestries, Southern folk art, new abstraction, and design, Clippinger sets loose shapes, colors and structures to make the eye sing.

Here Clippinger presents an assortment of textiles, painted sculpture, and works on paper, showing the structural and affective force of color.
