Checkerboard Sky Houses, 2017, Flashe on wood panel, 18 x 24"


Artist Statement

“Our concern is the interaction of color; that is, seeing
what happens between colors.

We are able to hear a single tone.
But we almost never (that is, without special devices) see a single color unconnected and unrelated to other colors.
Colors present themselves in continuous flux, constantly related to changing neighbors and changing conditions.”

Josef Albers
Interaction of Color

“Lately, I’ve been intrigued by how repeating similar color relationships in bands many times changes how color is seen.  
I love using stripes to make color syncopate, jump and dance."

-Ann Schaumburger

Artist Bio
Ann Schaumburger lives and works in New York City.  Schaumburger encountered tin miner’s stone houses in Cornwall, England and pre-fab metal houses in Amherst, Virginia during art residences at both places.  Schaumburger’s iconic house form serves as a scaffold to her experiments with color. Noticing what happens at the edges as two colors meet informs the next step. Color decisions are made in process and are not pre-planned.  The paintings are built color block by color block to create visual action.
