Colors in the River, papier mache and pastel pigment.
Papier mache has been formed and molded to make these bowls filled with color so bright the eye cannot resolve the form. These color bowls are a slow art– they reward observation over the time period it takes a sunbeam to cross them. Ann McMillan, with these sculptures, is asking us to take a while: to while away some time to appreciate the sublimity of color and to subsume ourselves in it. These bowls are a celebration of the brightest things out there: the bluest butterfly, the purest sunbeam, the most brilliant poppy. They are distillation of natural pigment, focused by sunshine.
