How do experiences become translated in memory? For Haggarty, a high-speed train trip through the South of France became a series of vivid colors and symbols. Lime green, brilliant blue, and lemon yellow. A bridge, a flower, a vase, and the moon.





Playing with placement and contrast, the icons became altogether new - “a little less recognizable, a little stranger” - re-contextualized on a new form.




A shock of lime green inside a wallet; a bright blue tab on a baseball hat. Haggarty uses color-blocking to create dimensionality and an element of surprise.

LEDGER WALLET

“I can open up my wallet - a functional object - everyday and be reminded of the colors I work with in the studio. It’s a way to tell a story, start a conversation, and be able to use art everyday."

TRAVELER BACKPACK

“Backpacks have always been an interesting subject for me as an artist. A few years ago I made a body of work all about backpacks and what they could carry. When I saw that Minor History had a really elegant, sleek one I thought, I have to try to do that.”

BASEBALL CAP

“I always wanted baseball hats when I was a kid because I have four brothers and a giant family and the boys always had cool baseball hats… So I thought it’d be kind of fun to have a baseball hat as an artist, as a grown woman, and have it be designed from scratch.”

PROCESS

Haggarty brought this compelling language of iconography and color to her Minor History collaboration. Each icon became a stencil, silk-screened in lapis blue and lime green.
