NARRATOR: Check out Jutta Koether’s large, colorful paintings. They’re called The Seasons. Take some time to walk around and look closely at them. Can you guess which painting goes with which season? The more you look at these, the more you see. Can you find a cat painted with orange and red brushstrokes? A bunch of purple grapes? A basket of red apples? The words “bio gods?”
The artist designed this installation herself. She intended the paintings to be hung like this—on glass in front of this angled window. You can also see the back of two of the paintings. Usually at museums you only get to see the front of the painting.
What does it feel like to be inside this space, looking out the window, surrounded by paintings? The artist calls her installation, quote, “a window onto a window.”
