The resulting fields of color evoke the paintings of Abstract Expressionist Mark Rothko (1903–1970) but are interrupted by a dripping mass of black paint that references the extraction of oil and other natural resources on national lands. Pendleton has produced blankets based on Native American designs since the late 1800s. The blankets are often given as gifts and used in ceremonies in tribal communities, but in recent years they have also become expensive commodities trendy among consumers who have little knowledge of the designs’ origins or meanings. After touring one of Pendleton’s factories near his hometown of Walla Walla, Washington, Aranda began making works using the company’s discarded products, highlighting the ongoing appropriation and exploitation of Indigenous culture in American society.

The rhythmic pattern references the sound waves used by archaeologists to uncover buried traces of ancient civilizations. Peters started her <i>this trembling turf</i> series in 2017 following an artist residency in Beirut, where she learned that the lush fairways of a local golf club are thought to overlay a mass grave: in 1982, a militia linked to the right-wing Maronite Christian Phalange party killed hundreds, if not thousands, of Palestinian refugees and Lebanese civilians in two refugee camps in West Beirut. Though created with these specific places and events in mind, Peters’s work is abstracted, opening broader questions she has posed when discussing the series, such as, “Is there a country on the planet that doesn't have the same kind of tormented past?” ", "Dedication" : "Purchased with funds provided by Seattle Art Fair, 2019.005", "Copyright_Type" : "", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "Painting", "Creation_Place2" : "", "Department" : "Contemporary", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/2019.005_Low-Res.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/2019.005_Low-Res.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/2019.005_Low-Res.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/2019.005_Low-Res.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "15253", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] }, ] }
