Leanne Shapton’s flat, painterly experiments on pattern and texture look like they belong on bolts of fabric. Such strong, mid-century color values and quirky illustrative brushwork. If you haven’t read it yet, get Important Artifacts and Personal Property from the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion, and Jewelry. Smart and sad and really lovely.
