ABSTRACT ARTISTS: PAINTERLY TO GRAPHIC

ABSTRACT ARTISTS THAT INFLUENCE MY WORK

There are so many influencer painters, I could blog, Instagram and Pinterest at nauseum about them so I will try to sprinkle these post in between my other interests like Interior Design, Fashion and Lifestyle.  Let's start with De Kooning, a dutch abstract expressionist that came to America as a house painter and worked his way into infamy.  I am a believer that persistant sweat equity can get you where you want to be.  His restrospective book is a good read and a great table top.  Of course, I own it.  Cy Twombly let me count the ways-- your use of line, your use of materials, your use of drip? Yes to all.  He studied under Kline and Motherwell and of course I own his tabletop book as well.  What I love recently is the use of abstract art in fashion.   Yayoi Kusama has been all over Louis Vuitton in what is there best work.  Kusama is known for her bold, abstract dots which create a visual feast.  These are a few of my favorite things and that's all for now.
