Squeak Carnwath at Oakland Museum of California.

Promise 1999

Attempting to be Happy 2000

SQUEAK CARNWATH'S paintings are detailed and complicated. They are not the type of creations you slap on your wall because they match the drapes. Even in their somewhat nerve-racking complexity, Carnwath's work becomes rather lovely and meaningful, especially to those who attempt to decode what the Oakland artist is trying to say.
But don't ask Carnwath to interpret her paintings for you. She is intentionally vague about the stories behind her works. She wants her viewers to read and analyze her paintings themselves.-

Squeak's show will be up until August 29th...Hope everyone gets a chance to check it out!
