For her One-on-One installation, Depth of Field, artist Maggie Michael responds to paintings and collages by American modernist Arthur Dove (1880–1946) in the Phillips’s permanent collection. Michael is inspired by Dove’s understanding of his time and how he recorded weather, landscape, personal relationships, social injustices, and scientific discoveries in letters, paintings, and found object assemblages. Paintings from Michael’s Transfer,Residual, Krakow, and Colored Ground series are in conversation with Dove’s work. Both artists explore abstraction, which becomes a record of their time alongside works by other artists across mediums.
