Judy Ledgerwood: Chromatic Patterns / by siena scarff

I wish that I had a chance to see this exhibition. It must have been quite hypnotic in person. 

"In Chromatic Patterns for the Graham Foundation, Chicago-based painter Judy Ledgerwood creates an immersive, site-spec"In Chromatic Patterns for the Graham Foundation, Chicago-based painter Judy Ledgerwood creates an immersive, site-specific wall painting that transforms the first-floor galleries of the Foundation’s historic Madlener House—designed by Richard E. Schmidt and Hugh M. G. Garden and built in 1901–02. Enveloping visitors in an optically expansive field of vibrant fluorescent colors with a metallic floral motif that pulsate in close proximity to the building’s Prairie-style ornamentation, this installation explores the possibilities of painting as it approaches the conditions of architecture—where walls take on new meaning and function, and the surface, the possibility to produce new affects."
