Judy Chicago’s Sky Sun created in 1971, illustrates her attempt to meld flesh and landscape references through color, form, and technique. Created using her signature palette of bright pastels, Sky Sun is part of a series of works painted using a technique Chicago developed after she learned how to spray paint at autobody school. Acrylic lacquer, sprayed in successive layers onto an acrylic support, allowed for a complete fusion of color and surface. The luminous squares of color that fade in and out of their gridded format seem to move and breathe as they expand and contract.

A pioneer of feminist art since the early 1970s, Judy Chicago advocates issues of women's liberation and independence through diverse media including paintings, drawings, sculptures, and collaborative installations. Her iconic work The Dinner Party (1974—1979), which is now permanently installed in the Brooklyn Museum of Art's Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, is widely regarded as one of the most influential works of feminist art. With Miriam Schapiro, Chicago co-founded the Feminist Art Program at the California Institute of the Arts—the first program of its kind—and collaborated on the formative installation Womanhouse (1972). More recently, Chicago has expanded upon her efforts in gender politics, focusing on broader social issues. Her work has been exhibited extensively at venues such as the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, the New Museum, the Centre Pompidou, the Whitney Museum, and the Jewish Museum in New York.
