Leslie Diuguid American

Not on view

In this untitled print, Diuguid evokes the American artist Wanda Ewing (1970–2013). Ewing, who worked across printmaking, sculpture, painting, collage, and fiber art, focused on the frequent absence of Black women from art history. Diuguid references Ewing’s use of bold colors, patterns, and black-and-white "pin-up" forms pulled from popular culture, as well as her provocation, humor, and confrontation of stereotypes. The bright tones also have meaning for Diuguid, who views color as the "gateway to our emotional language of experience." The work has a personal connection too; the decorative tulip pattern shown in the background was based on a wallpaper the two artists discovered while thrifting together in Omaha, Nebraska. Diuguid now keeps the wallpaper in her studio.
