Anoka Faruqee: The Visible Spectrum

Anoka Faruqee: The Visible Spectrum
Library Shelf Location 18.FARU
Publication Date 2017

One of her central aims is to create a tension between atmospheric impressions of light and illusion and the material nature of color and paint. Translations between the theoretical and tangible, between the virtual and physical, are central to her work. These would be very different
paintings if there were no excess, no errata, or no corruption. These interruptions read simultaneously as painterly gesture, material accident, and electro-magnetic corruption, crucially animating her paintings.
Her book „The Visible Spectrum” emphasizes the visuality of her recent paintings, their visual and material influences and inspirations, as well as a preoccupation with color. The idea of a spectrum or continuum is also a philosophical counterpoint to polarities. The source imagery in the book is wide ranging and their connections are unexpected.
