Monochrome mid century painting. Signed Eve Garrison. Love it!
Eve Josephson Garrison (1903-2003) was a modernist painter. Her early works focused on a realist style including landscapes and cityscapes, specifically depicting Chicago, Colorado, and Mexico. She also painted nudes and portraits and increasingly abstract and textured art in later life.She suggested creating work for juried shows and annuals was not the way "to be a great artists!" Instead, she began making work that felt was more expressive of her ideas. In the sixties she began making work that she termed "sculptural relief oil paintings." This involved a process of embedding objects such as seeds, branches, glass, and string into the paint. During the period she was producing more abstract work she had solo exhibitions in New York, Detroit, Milwaukee, Miami, Paris, and London.
