Amon Carter - Meditations: Eleanore Mikus at Tamarind
Exhibition on Display: September 19, 2020-April 18, 2021
The more you look, the more you see. Beginning in the 1960s, artist Eleanore
Mikus (1927-2017) created monochromatic, contemplative abstractions that
respond to the light and shadows of their surroundings in an almost sculptural
way. These experimental compositions draw you in, rewarding those willing to
linger in front of her subtle, sometimes puzzling, pieces with moments of
Meditations: Eleanore Mikus at Tamarind brings together rarely seen prints that
Mikus created at the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in 1968. Here, Mikus
translated her signature style of painting into the medium of printmaking.
Meditations draws from the Carter’s deep collection of works on paper, which
includes more than 2,500 Tamarind prints from the 1960s, making the Carter
one of the few museums in the country with nearly comprehensive holdings from
this workshop, which pioneered a revival in the fine art of lithography.
