Gathie Falk

Theatre in B/W and Colour - Bushes with Fish in B/W

1984
Falk has described her work as a “veneration of the ordinary,” and she often focuses on everyday items such as clothing, furniture or food. Here, rows of potted plants – a recurrent motif in the artist’s practice – evoke wallpaper or printed textiles. With a second black-and-white version, Falk cues us to think about the effect of colour in painting, as well as in photography and cinema.
