Paint and vinyl on aluminum artwork soon on display at Taubman Center
Desiree Warren’s current body of work is a journey using one shape (the orzo) to create a multitude of layers that evoke landscapes and organic assimilations.
Growing up in rural Kansas, she had wide open spaces to explore, as well as many of her family’s dilapidated farm buildings and overgrown pasture lands. At the University of Kansas, she began working with street sign material and has continued to incorporate aluminum and vinyl in her work.
Part of this series of artwork is included in the 2017 Women to Watch: Metals exhibition at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City, Missouri, where she lives and works. Her work will soon be on display at Michigan Medicine. Here’s how you can check it out:
