I have written a new piece for Abstract Critical, a wonderful painting-directed art magazine. In the article I continue to discuss the idea of the Being/Image and our aversion to confronting this idea in abstract painting. The article also links to 3 images, Paul Strand’s Torso, de Kooning’s Woman I and Coplan’s Torso. Please make sure to open those links – the images are important to the discussion. Do feel free to comment as well! There is always a lively debate to be had about abstract painting!
My thanks to Sam Cornish of the Abstract Critical team!
