Squeak Carnwath Works Biography

SQUEAK CARNWATH

Squeak Carnwath draws upon the philosophical and mundane experiences of daily life in her paintings and prints, which can be identified by lush fields of color combined with text, patterns, and identifiable images. She has received numerous awards including the Society for the Encouragement of Contemporary Art (SECA) Award from San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, two Individual Artist Fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Award for Visual Arts from the Flintridge Foundation, the Award for Individual Artists from the Flintridge Foundation, and the Lee Krasner Lifetime Achievement Award from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation. In 2019, she was inducted into the National Academy of Design and Art. Carnwath is Professor Emerita at the University of California, Berkeley. She is a founding member and current president of the Artists’ Legacy Foundation. She lives and works in Oakland, CA.

 

A Simple List

  1. It’s simple really,

to paint is to trust.

To believe in our instincts; to become.

  1. Painting is an investigation of being.
  2. It is not the job of art to mirror. Images reflected in a mirror appear to us in reverse. An artist’s responsibility is to reveal consciousness; to produce a human document.
  3. Painting is an act of devotion. A practiced witnessing of the human spirit.
  4. Paintings are about:

paint

observation &

thought.

  1. Art is not about facts but about what is; the am-ness of things.
  2. All paintings share a connection with all other paintings.
  3. Art is evidence. Evidence of breathing in and breathing out; proof of human majesty.
  4. Painting places us. Painting puts us in real time. The time in which we inhabit our bodies.
  5. Light is the true home of painting.
  6. The visible is how we orient ourselves. It remains our principal source of information about the world. Painting reminds us of what is absent. What we don’t see anymore.
  7. Painting is not only a mnemonic device employed to remember events in our lifetime. Paintings address a greater memory. A memory less topical, one less provincial than the geography of our currently occupied body. Painting reminds us of what we don’t know but what we recognize as familiar.
  8. Painting, like water, takes any form. Paint is a film of pigment on a plane. It is not real in the way that gravity-bound sculpture is real. It is, however, real. Painting comes to reality through illusion. An illusion that allows us to make a leap of faith; to believe. To believe in a blue that can be the wing of a bug or a thought. It makes our invisible visible.
