Marks Blackwood is a photographer who has spent her life looking at paintings. Her work is part of a movement known as Pictorialists, a group of photographers who created a style of photography based on painting rather than on documentation. Inspired by Color Field painters, and artists like Rothko and Newman, Blackwood focuses on images that have strong verticals or horizontals and which tend to fill the whole optical field.
From the artist: I took a photo of the floor Carolee's [Schneemann] painting studio. I thought it was so beautiful and represented so many years of work and spirit. I thought it would make a beautiful scarf. For every scarf of her floor that sells, I will give my profit to the Carolee Schneemann Foundation
