    About The Work

    Acclaimed artist Jennifer Bartlett's systematic method makes up the foundation of her diverse practice. Indeed, many of the forms and processes that have shaped painting, like the grid, have been re-defined and re-purposed by Barlett through her career. Her subject matter is often familiar to the point of mundane, includes houses, statues, and strangely recognizable landscapes, all of which invite the viewer to consider their mysterious narrative. This unique enamel and steel plate work, references her influential installation Rhapsody (1975–6), which consists of 988 steel plates, covered with screen print grids and hand-painted enamel. The text found on this piece reads, “THE VISCERA ARE REALLY REALLY SCARY WHEN THEY COME POKING OUT OF THE WOUND LIKE THAT. SHH QUIET [...].”
