Color Field Painting is another major strain in the 20th century Expressionist Movement.The term typically is dominated by large flat expanses of color on canvas and having a minimum in the surface detail. These particular paintings have a unified single image field and differ from the gestural, expressive brushwork of such artists as Pollock and deKooning. This art form came after Post Painterly Abstract Expressionism Movement. One of the examples of my works in this manner is "The Ocean Road" where the viewer sees large fields of color. Other conceptual examples are my 3 paintings: "A Little Whimsey 1,2,3.
These paintings combine optical responses to multicolored paint to create rainbow effects.I used a banal target as a found design with which to examine different hues and values of flat color eliminating the use of brushstrokes altogether.
The Post Painterly Abstract Movement favored openess or clarity as opposed to the dense painterly surfaces of that painting style. Examples of my work "Skylights" and "Reflections".
