Dan McCleary
White Carnations, 2005
Jacquard tapestry
76 x 56 in.

White Carnations is Magnolia Editions’ third and most successful attempt to translate one of Dan McLeary’s spare, lyrical paintings into a tapestry. Although still lifes have been painted for centuries, McLeary’s work has an undeniably modern flavor. The translation of his paintings into a historically rich medium such as tapestry creates a unique, understated fusion of the venerable and the contemporary.
