Hello again, painters.
Well, it certainly has been some week. But as promised, another newsletter is arriving right on time. I’m going to start out this year by sharing the work of Vivian Springford, an artist whose work has recently been featured in a show at Almine Rech Gallery in NYC.
Vivian Springford (1913 - 2003) created the kind of expansive, colorful work that should be mentioned in the same breath as her more famous abstract contemporaries, like Morris Louis and Helen Frankenthaler. And indeed, during her time she did catch the eye of several prominent New York art critics, but despite that, knowledge of her work faded from public memory.
“My painting is my own small plot of energy, in terms of color and movement, in the universal whole.”
