In the more than 40 works in Patois, Kushner juxtaposes broad bands of gold leaf and gestural painted flowers with ephemera — including ancient texts in myriad languages, as well as musical scores, book covers, end papers, postage stamps and illustrations. He creates an exotic garden woven from many languages that ultimately speaks in one lively, unique voice.
