Abstract expressionism
Abstract Expressionism

  • Pollock’s Legacy – Pictures of Nothing: Abstract Art Since Pollock by Kirk Varnedoe

    • Critic Clement Greenberg said that Pollock advanced the line of abstraction’s logical progress toward its supposedly destined goal of expressing the essential visual qualities of painting without any extraneous literary content.

    • Introduction of painting as an art object


Abstract expressionism1
Abstract Expressionism

  • A painting movement in which artists typically applied paint rapidly, and with force to their huge canvases in an effort to show feelings and emotions, painting gesturally, non-geometrically, sometimes applying paint with large brushes, sometimes dripping or even throwing it onto canvas. Their work is characterized by a strong dependence on what appears to be accident and chance, but which is actually highly planned. Some Abstract Expressionist artists were concerned with adopting a peaceful and mystical approach to a purely abstract image. Usually there was no effort to represent subject matter. Not all work was abstract, nor was all work expressive, but it was generally believed that the spontaneity of the artists' approach to their work would draw from and release the creativity of their unconscious minds. The expressive method of painting was often considered as important as the painting itself.

Pop art

  • Andy Warhol reveled in the indirect process of printmaking that simulated mass production. He frequently used photographic silkscreen techniques to give a mechanical look, removed from the personal touch of artist’s own hand. His studio, “The Factory,” as he referred to it, often included numerous assistants. His works present a sort of portrait of America in the sixties- products, people and symbols in a cool and detached view. The question never answered by Warhol is whether he was criticizing or celebrating popular culture.
