Anita Fields is a Native Osage artist of considerable renown working in clay and textiles with pieces exhibited in New York City, the Heard Museum of Phoenix, the National Museum of the American Indian, the Smithsonian, and the National Museum of Women in The Arts. She creates work that represents the balance found in nature and our lives, and early Osage notions of duality such as earth and sky, male and female.
"Soft Shapes" is a piece that reflects the curves, bends and angles found in the forms of the natural world. The shapes were created by folding paper and cutting along lines to mimic leaves, organic forms and other "earthy delights." By this process each shape has a symmetry, and Fields further emphasizes this balance by placing them symmetrically on each side of the coat, front and back. The simple palette of rich gold on black has a striking visual impact while the indeterminate shapes have a modern art look of a Matisse.
Imagine this piece over basic black with a single chunky gold pendant and cuff bracelet, or over a column of a simple gold top and slim leg pant for a special occasion look that is pure "wow!"
