About

c.r.e.a.m by Ann Chisholm. 2018 Paper and ink on canvas. 21 x 97 x 1.5 in This work consists of 5 pieces. c.r.e.a.m. is about America’s obsession with chasing money. The title comes from a Wu-Tang Clan song of the same name. The term c.r.e.a.m. has been adopted into America’s lexicon as slang for money. The use of numbers is a visual representation of all the money in the world. Numbers also have the ability to invoke an emotional reaction from the viewer, birthday, important date in history, or income bracket, are examples. The ciphers are used for their graphic quality and the idea that how to get rich is a secret that is only available to the few who have the key to decipher. Communication or communicating is a theme in Ann Chisholm's work, especially in the collages. She uses words, numbers, and symbols to give visual hints. What Ann is trying to convey in a collage may be encrypted or may be nonsense. In many ways Ann Chisholm's work is about the process. She has an idea and then gives herself specific tasks to complete. Once the tasks are complete, the piece is finished. This way of working is particularly true with Ann's striped paintings that are created in multiples using several layers of ink that is dragged across each canvas which allows for unplanned variations and the futility of the effort lend to the meaning of the work. The hope is that the viewer will have a contemplative experience.
