Product Description
Squeak Carnwath Notecard Folio
The paintings of Squeak Carnwath (American, b. 1947), often subtly illuminated by meticulously applied layers of glaze, also embody complex layers of meaning. “Paintings are not ordinary objects,” the artist observes. “A painting is not a clock; it cannot tell time but a painting embodies time. It is not a vessel, which can hold water, but painting is a carrier of meaning, of human touch. Each brush stroke or smear of pigment is freighted with philosophical inquiry.” In Carnwath’s works, orderly rows of writing are placed to slow the eye, “to put the viewer in real time.” Recurring motifs touch on personal and universal themes, from a rabbit tentatively seeking his place in a chaotic world to the seated blue Medicine Buddha, healer of ills and reminder of the latent Buddha nature in each of us.

Recipient of numerous awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship and an Individual Artist Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, Carnwath maintains a studio in Oakland, California, where she has lived and worked since 1970. Carnwath received her MFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts in 1977 and has taught at the University of California since 1982. Much more of her work can be seen in the book Squeak Carnwath: Painting Is No Ordinary Object, by Karen Tsujimoto and John Yau (Pomegranate, 2009).
