    Description

    BROR ALEXANDER UTTER (American, 1913-1993)
    Smoke Signals
    Gouache on paper
    14 x 14 inches (35.6 x 35.6 cm)

    Smoke Signals employs one of his precariously harmonious palettes. Though he took on many subjects, Utter was primarily a figure painter. In this work, both his figures and their dream-like setting have become more abstract. They signal to each other as if communicating the mystical secrets of the universe.
