About

Karat relates to America's obsession with money. The thick gold leafed canvases are like gold bricks. There are 18 canvases in this piece which represent the idea of always wanting more and the longing for 24. Karat also uses the reoccurring motif of multiples on top of multiples. karat by Ann Chisholm. 2018 Paper, ink, acrylic paint and gold leaf on canvas. 25 x 65 x 2.5 in This work consists of 18 pieces that are each 18 x 8 x 2.5 inches. 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. 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.
