New Work: Etel Adnan

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

Born in Beirut, Lebanon, in 1925, visual artist, poet, and essayist Etel Adnan writes what must be communicated through language, and paints what cannot. While her earliest paintings favored pure abstraction, she is perhaps best known for her landscape works inspired by her long obsession with Mount Tamalpais. Adnan's recent works once again return to abstraction, most specifically, color and its possibilities.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock has to say about New Work: Etel Adnan :

Known primarily for pure abstraction, as well as landscape works inspired by a long obsession with Marin’s Mount Tamalpais, Etel Adnan was an active participant in Ann O’Hanlon’s Perception Workshops in Mill Valley in the 1960s. In this, her first solo exhibition at SFMOMA, Adnan presents new paintings and tapestries.
