Little Red Corvette - Katherine Bernhardt


Little Red Corvette is an example of Katherine Bernhardt’s ‘Pattern Painting’ series, which often take the form of large-scale depictions of a crowded array of everyday items. Bernhardt isolates these items from any original context, and arranges them in a repetitive composition. Using bright colors and a fluid style, her canvases joyfully reflect inner passions and personal obsessions. This piece was commissioned for 1001 Woodward and was inspired by the city of Detroit.
