The Doorway Portfolio

In the twelve sumptuous serigraphs in this portfolio, David C. Driskell represents the doorway as a passage between two worlds — interior and exterior, material and spiritual, real and imagined,” writes Phillips Collection Curator, Elsa Smithgall. Colorful, and full of movement and rhythms, the images vary from recognizable pictorial views to highly abstract representations of the idea of a passageway.
