Jane Lackey SNIPS/Slips #4 Dictionary, Laser Engraving Lacquer Wood Frame 2002

Sale price$1,000.00


A contemporary artwork titled “SNIPS/Slips #4” by American artist Jane Lackey. Signed and dated 2002 on verso. There’s more here than meets the eye. At first glance, Lackey’s poetic and meticulously rendered image brings to mind the boldly striped fabrics of the Moroccan medina or, in the worn patterns of the dictionary cover on the right, the spontaneous compositions of Abstract Expressionist art. But other ideas are at work in this elegant construction. Our first hint is its title “SNPS/slips #4.” Lackey created a series of these pieces of her continued exploration of the inner operations of the body and the genetic codes that spell out her individual characteristics … (see last photo in listing for the full interpretation of this artwork). Jane Lackey (1948- ) heads the fiber department at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Her work is included in the collections of the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City. From a private collection. Dimensions: 20”h x 24”w x 2.5”d (framed). In excellent condition.
