Michelle Grabner
Untitled, 2017
22.25 x 15 inches
Edition: 30/50
Many of Grabner’s works merge the minimalist aesthetic of the grid with the familiar patterns, colors, and connotations of the domestic and handmade. This print follows suit, as Grabner offers the viewer a close-up view of the red and white gingham pattern that is so often connected to summer picnics or the interiors of small countryside kitchens. The simplicity of the work allows the viewer to draw a range of personal associations connected to emotion, memory, and history. Untitled was produced to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland's founding, where Grabner’s first comprehensive solo museum exhibition took place in 2013.
