Nancy Spero
Azur - 2, 2003
Jacquard tapestry
82 x 17 in.

Nancy Spero’s indelible oeuvre draws together imagery and figures from ancient mythology, contemporary media, literature, and her own work, redefining and rearranging them into a series of haunting transmissions. A studied, thoughtful alchemy is at work here, as Spero’s juxtapositions corrode the world of signs and meaning to reveal the hidden realms of history and memory. -Nick Stone
