Label Text:Fusing layers of representational and abstract imagery in shades of blue Walter Askin creates a surreal scene in Bernalillo Blues. A human figure looks out from a window frame adjacent to a large open curtain with a potted plant. The background suggests an abstracted representation of a flurry of snow or rain. Askin’s push and pull between representational and nonrepresentational imagery invites careful viewing of Bernalillo Blues which was printed in collaboration with John Sommers at the Tamarind Institute in 1972.

Fusing layers of representational and abstract imagery in shades of blue Walter Askin creates a surreal scene in Bernalillo Blues. A human figure looks out from a window frame adjacent to a large open curtain with a potted plant. The background suggests an abstracted representation of a flurry of snow or rain. Askin’s push and pull between representational and non-representational imagery invites careful viewing of Bernalillo Blues which was printed in collaboration with John Sommers at the Tamarind Institute in 1972.
