    American Abstract Artist- Barnett Newman

    I have made the latest post to my blog featuring Barnett Newman. Before I started this blog I never knew so much about American Abstract Expressionism, all I knew really was Pollock. Creating this blog has given me a wealth of inspiration and I am so happy that America had this part of their history. I as a Brit am proud of our painters past and present, but I have to admit, I envy you for having such a great period. I have also updated the birthdays and the Title Competition is going great.

    Having a period isnít all itís cracked up to be. The cramps, in particular, suck.

    The guy who painted this used Bartnett Newman's vertical strips. http://www.portraitsociety.org/confe...s/galicano.jpg

    Notice the strong vertical.

    See Seedling, you have to draw the line somewhere. Just not on canvas!

    Patdzon -- to you!

    I *love* that portrait. That won the national competition a few years ago at the Portrait Society.

    Although, you can really see how he's ripping off that great genius Barnett Newman! Gimme my vertical back! Its my vertical! Mine! Mine!

    I happen to know because not only is he filipino, he happens to be my neighbor! He uses that in almost all of his paintings.

    I spent way too much time in Contemporary Art History studying Barnett Newman "declaring the space" with a stripe down the middle of the canvas to ever want to look at his work again. I'm not a person to judge the quality of art, but I can say his work didn't do anything for me.
