In her screenprint titled Oculus, Susan Crile strives to bring the vocabulary of early modernist abstraction into the contemporary context. Often reviewed in periodicals and catalogues by art critics, curators and art historians, Crile is noted for her disturbing and evocative abstracts. Vaguely geometric, planetary and aeronautical shapes and patterns are rendered in thin veils of saturated color often used in eccentric combinations. Imagery shifts from geometric to biomorphic fields. Crile's concern for spatial complexity is magnified by stretching and compressing planar forms into dynamic compositions that challenge the viewer's perception of space and time.
Oculus was screeprinted in 15 colors on premium Rives BFK paper (archival, 100% cotton, acid-free) made in France, in a limited edition of 69 impressions. As with all Stewart & Stewart publications, each impression is signed and numbered by the artist and includes complete print documentation also signed by the artist.
