After blogging about Victor, my thoughts strayed to Richard, who had a lot of influence over me during a specific period of time (the first one is Richard, the second one is mine from ~2000).
So yeah it’s probably pretty non-shocking to anyone who knows my work that I think about Victor’s work pretty often.
I felt like I’d seen Carlos’s work before seeing the first piece below in #surmoderno. A little internet searching turned up some things that… yeah, I’m sure I’ve seen these in popular culture, definitely the ones in Houston. His work focused (he’s no longer with us) on the kinetic energy of color particularly the #moiré effect.
Hyperallergic notes Lee’s particular reaction to the “second generation” question of Modernism. A few of Lee’s compatriots also get a mention.
A title like Shaking Up Op Art would have caught my eye even if I didn’t see it was from #hyperallergic
Another IG, hashtag find
Sorry to discover Matthew because his work had come to an end.
If you don’t read Juxtapoz why?
I did a double take when I saw the synopsis for an article titled Surrealism and the Subjective with the image below. The connection to and use of automatism- some would just call it “intuition”- by practitioners of abstraction is well documented and in this instance striking given the technical rigor of work whose apparent premise of planning belies the use of chance.
