Spotlight on the Collection

Spotlight on the Collection

MAM’s bimonthly series, Spotlight on the Collection, highlights artworks from the permanent collection and original scholarship by MAM staff. This work is a bold, refreshing painting filled with raucous colors and forms that are about to explode out of the picture plane. Push and pull, a term used to explain the ability of color combinations to recede and move forward within a picture, is clearly visible between the back and blue background and the two figures that fill most of the composition.
