Panama

  • Edward C. Flood, Panama, 1973, acrylic on plastic and wood, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of the S. W. and B. M. Koffler Foundation, 1979.53.9

Luce Center Label

Edward Flood made Panama soon after moving to New York, and the piece was included in the 1973 biennial exhibition in São Paulo, Brazil. His abstract sculptures and "picto-boxes" often retained elements of the landscape and seascape imagery found in his earlier work. In Panama the painted forms evoke tendrils of seaweed that emerge from the edges of the piece and seem to sway with an imaginary current.
