Jean Alexander Frater, "Colorful Background With Soft Folds"


Sorry, this product is no longer available on Dering Hall.

This three dimensional painting by Jean Alexander Frater is made up of a colorful, negative space pattern that has been thoughtfully folded into one intricate mass. Each folder distorts the color, pattern, and lighting of the piece which provides “;Colorful Background with Soft Folds” with a extraordinary complexity. Jean Alexander Frater works with painting as an object rather than a picture. Treating the surface of the canvas like fabric, Frater folds to disrupt the forms she has painted on. The ripples that result are a refreshing approach to grids, stripes, gradients, often used in abstraction. Frater received her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work has been exhibited internationally from the Big Screen Project in New York to the Ben-Gurion airport in Tel Aviv. Jean Alexander Frater was a recipient of the Working Artists Grant in 2014 and is currently a BOLT resident at Chicago Artists Coalition.
