Anoka Faruqee's artist's book documents the making of two of her paintings: "Equator" and "Corbelled Arch," both 2010. A series of studio photographs catalogues the laborious practice of mixing dozens, sometimes hundreds of subtly shifting colors for each painting. The book tracks Faruqee's disciplined yet surprisingly freehand painting process, as she repeats a single handmade motif across a large surface on subtly increasing curves.
Anoka Faruqee is a painter who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY and New Haven, CT. She has exhibited her work internationally. She is an Associate Professor at Yale School of Art.
