Anoka Faruqee: Substance & Accident

Rob Marks reviews the exhibition Anoka Faruqee: Substance and Accident at Hosfelt Gallery, San Francisco, on view through December 7, 2013.

Marks notes that "the perception that Faruqee’s patterns are self-evident—arise only because the conventional idea of moiré-ness, like an insidious stereotype, may distract viewers from the particular conditions that characterize Faruqee’s expression of the pattern, and from the nature of her painted surfaces… all [of the works] produce [a] dynamic of depth, breadth, and layering that reads as both moiré and not-moiré. The canvas is barely able to contain these multiple activities."
