Flight Hood is from Judy Chicago’s Minimal period.
“For Chicago, minimalism was more than a phase, it was a formative approach the artist integrated into her later work. The seemingly dramatic shift and direction of her work after 1973 is not at all as discordant as it appears; rather, it was a gradual process which is easily illuminated and traced through the development of the work made between 1965 and 1973.”
Jenni Sorkin, curator of the exhibition Judy Chicago Minimalism, 1965-1973, at LewAllen Contemporary, Santa Fe, NM.
