SKY SUN DINNER PLATE 

Judy Chicago’s Sky Sun created in 1971, illustrates her attempt to meld flesh and landscape references through color, form, and technique. Created using her signature palette of bright pastels, Sky Sun is part of a series of works painted using a technique Chicago developed after she learned how to spray paint at autobody school. Acrylic lacquer, sprayed in successive layers onto an acrylic support, allowed for a complete fusion of color and surface. The luminous squares of color that fade in and out of their gridded format seem to move and breathe as they expand and contract.

About Judy Chicago

The Trailblazer.

You may know her as a key player in the feminist movement, but Judy Chicago is much, much more. Think innovators and early adopters – then go one step earlier, and you’ll find Chicago. She is a pioneer who sees art as language. And like any language, she believes art can be learned, it must be used and maintained, and it must evolve. Chicago is an artist, author of 14 books, and educator whose work shouts out for women’s rights to freedom of expression. She founded a feminist art and art education program in California in the early 1970s, then created ‘The Dinner Party’: an epic installation now housed at the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at New York’s Brooklyn Museum. From 1974 to 1979, she painstakingly arranged the 39 place settings that make up the artwork – places for prehistoric goddesses, women in Christianity and the Reformation, and early revolutionaries such as Virginia Woolf and Georgia O’Keeffe. It’s the ultimate can’t-miss dinner party, and Judy Chicago is the ultimate powerhouse host.
