Rosalyn Schwartz: A Brief History of Seduction
For the fifteenth presentation in the ARTMATTERS series of work by contemporary artists, the McNay brings together paintings and collages by Illinois-based Rosalyn Schwartz. Schwartz’s work finds inspiration in decor, elements of kitsch, interior design and references to art history. By juxtaposing representational and abstract imagery with decorative motifs and patterns, Schwartz asks the viewer to consider questions of accepted style and personal taste.
