Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States

In New Work, New York Member Ann Schaumburger extends her fifty-year practice of using the structure of the house to explore how colors interact with one another. Inspired by the biography of Henry David Thoreau, the houses in these Flashe on panel paintings are mounted on wheels. “The idea of taking a solid house, attached to the ground, and letting it roll away,” Schaumburger says, “seems both comical and deeply suggestive of our times.”
