Artist: Melissa Parrot Quimby
Melissa Parrott Quimby is a contemporary visual artist who emphasizes the movement of shape and color in her abstract collages, paintings, drawings and ceramic sculptures in response to her environment and experiences. This Moderne Chroma installation is inspired by the Art Deco movement that originated in the 1920s and developed into a major style in Western Europe and the United States during the 1930s. The artwork is characterized by sleek geometric and stylized patterns relating to textile and fashion designs of Art Deco marked by bright colors and flat shapes.
