Gestural, free and brimming with emotive energy are Joan Mitchell’s Trees at Cheim & Read. Her works, rooted in abstract expressionism are a lyrical blend of looking inward and outward and in the moment finding one’s own way. Moving across the canvas with her richly hued, paint saturated brushwork Mitchell attempts to capture a feeling while alluding towards the form and structure of the trees, which she abstracted throughout her career. Encapsulating the same sense of modern bohemia is this intricately embroidered tone on tone silk crepe maxi dress by Calypso. Elegant and fluid this dress is a dreamy accompaniment to Joan Mitchell’s minimal forest. A line that is rooted in all that is spirited and free radiates grace in the midst of Mitchell’s uniqueness of being.
