#ThinkAbstract: Texture enlivens an artwork’s surface and attracts our eyes. 👀#HowardenaPindell (Pics 1-2) modeled her rugged topography with paint and non-traditional materials such as hole-punch dots. #NanetteCarter (Pics 3-4) implies texture. Her repetitious mark-making creates a smooth surface that appears tactile.

❓🤔 ❓#ThinkAbstract: How does color in #MagneticFieldsDC paintings by #GildaSnowden (Pics 1-3) & #BrennaYoungblood (Pics 4-6) affect the mood of the work? How would your response change if the works were a single color, or monochrome?
