Color field painting is an abstract art style that emerged in the late 1940’s and 1950’s in New York. At that time color left the world of fine art as just an influencing agent, and became the subject matter. As we well know today, the select use of color in art wields great power over our intellectual and emotional beings. In my Color Field works, with every new work I intend to continue to advance this style of art through a multitude of personally developed painterly processes.
Specifically, in my “Panacea Pour l’ame” Color Field Paintings Series, there is a historical goal in mind. This series works to bridge the gap between Classic Linear-Geometric Color Fields and Linear-Geometric Abstraction.
Major Influencers: Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman, Robert Motherwell, Hans Hofmann.
