Sarah Crowner Wall (Hot Blue Terra Cotta) at MASS MoCA

Sarah Crowner’s 10 × 20 foot tile mural Wall (Hot Blue Terra Cotta)— fabricated for her recent MASS MoCA exhibition — now guides visitors in and out of the museum’s new gallery spaces. Known for her bold and graphic work in a variety of mediums spanning the fine and applied arts, Crowner finds the forms and patterns of abstraction in the everyday. Her monumental structure transforms painting into architecture (and vice versa), with the imperfections and eccentricities of the hand-glazed tiles functioning like a painter’s gestures.
