What you will find here

… are short blogs about other artists’ work that I find interesting and inspiring- mostly abstract painters like myself. You can also use the menu to find images of things I am making (while I am primarily a painter, I also create abstract work in other media), as well as some perspective on being an Artist with a big “A” after the historical narrative of painting’s progression has been shed.

Please sign up for email updates so I can build a mailing list! 

de Kooning

Both Elaine and Willem were painters which I haven’t yet blogged about. As readers are likely aware it has taken some recent academic pushes to rewrite Elaine’s (and others) deserved place in the narrative of NY-based painters in mid-century America (with the Denver museum making perhaps the biggest move although not the only one).

There’s been no shortage of words written about her husband of course. When I first noted their absence from this blog I immediately became curious about how their relationship informed their work.
