By the time she made this work, Rowe had developed a sophisticated mastery of color and compositional structure. She gained access to very large paper through Judith Alexander, the Atlanta gallerist who began representing Rowe in 1978 and who gave the High the vast majority of Rowe’s works in this exhibition. The dapper blue figure seems to coax the parade of converging dreamlike forms in this drawing, including a sphinxlike yellow creature who follows the central, orange-bodied dog carrying a turban-wearing figure on his back.
